Materia Oscura, 2019

The artist book Materia Oscura has been published in an edition of 100+ 15 artist proofs, of which 50 are allocated for acquisition.

For the design of the book I have teamed with KOLN studio in Madrid and for the printing with Artes Gráficas Palermo in Madrid. With the realisation of an artist book the aim was to get as close as possibile to fine art printing. For this reason the book has been printed with digital/offset process (Indigo) to allow increased contrast and deep colour saturation using “arte coated” paper Guardapat Kiara.

The stamping on the cover allows a unique materiality which by process changes patterns making each copy unique. Each copy is signed and numbered. Full specifications below.

The images are complemented by texts by Guido Carrai and Andrea Louis Ballardini, an introduction by HE Aldo Amati, Italian Ambassador in Czech Republic and Roberto Sestini, Chairman of the SIAD Group. Written in Italian, Czech and English, this first edition is printed in 1000 copies of which only 80 units will be available for sale on this website and selected bookshops.
