José Francisco Borges is a well known folk artist from Brazil. He is best known for his stunning wood block prints. He is a prolific artist and poet, creating pamphlets in his studio on an old hand run printing press with wood block prints on the cover (and sometimes on the back as well).
We have been lucky enough to have come upon a few of these pamphlets, which are about many different subjects - very few are the same. So, please let us choose one for you.
Most are several pages long - usually about 8 pages, hand printed in Borges' studio. Each features a print similar to the ones pictured on the front, although there are many more images. These are great to collect or to use in your artwork. The poems and prose inside are written in Brazilian Portuguese, Borges' native language.
The pamphlets differ slightly in size, but all are about the same: from 6-1/2 to 7 inches by 4-1/4 to 4-1/2 inches. Colors of the cover paper and internal leaves differ as well.
Please let us choose one for you.
