Italian Diamond Block Printed Sheet
This design originates in Italy in at least the 18th Century. Variations can be found throughout Europe and through the Centuries. Papers like this would be printed one at a time on a hand press on hand carved wooden blocks. The block would have been inked with a thin paste-based ink, the paper laid on top, and the pressure applied would be from a barren or a muller.
Our block printed papers use archival oil-based inks and are placed in a press. Essentially the process is the same, with a few alterations. They are printed by hand in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
We use Khadi Papers for these prints. Read more about Khadi Papers and our materials.
