Worldwide: Limited Edition 'Torta della Nonna' Original Letterpress Print

55.00 - Sold out

This print, handmade by historic letterpress technique by 'La Tipografa Toscana' in San Miniato, Tuscany, and it celebrates some of my favourite Italian desserts: Castagnaccio, Budino di riso, Zuccotto, Ciambellone, Cenci, Zabaione, Crostata di ricotta, Bomoboloni and Torta della Nonna.

The colours are inspired by my cookbook Torta della Nonna, a bright, orange-red vermillion and a sky blue.

About the making of this print:

Letterpress is the process of relief printing which pushes the letters into the paper creating a relief. It's a completely artisanal process where the letters are placed on a block by hand, inked and printed individually. For the second colour to be added, a new block has to be carefully created, measured out and inked, then printed onto the same prints. These are made with antique fonts collected from all over Italy. It is a labour of love and a dying process!

This was made in a limited edition of 45 prints only. Each print is slightly unique as it is handmade, not machine printed, so there are some very tiny variations in ink that show you this is artisanal.


Paper size is 15x20cm (6 x 8 inches).
