Paulson Press

For the past several years, Paulson Press in Berkeley, California has been working with some of the art world's biggest (and some of the newest) names to produce incredibly beautiful limited edition intaglio prints. Founders and master print-makers Pamela Paulson and Renee Bott wanted to create an environment in which artists could explore this unique art form, and create some of their best work.

Paulson press first began by teaching workshops in intaglio printing, and produced editions for local artists. Shortly afterwards, the Press began to expand their production by creating exclusive works by artists such as Ciao Fonseca (below left), Ross Bleckner (below right) and Chris Johanson (above right).

Check out their amazing inventory on their website, including my personal favorite of the spiraling colors by Chris Johanson. Also check out the short videos on their site that explain and demonstrate the intaglio process.
