Another project of many hats and a single creator, where the desire to share a passion and learn more about how to make things come together to create a beautiful set of materials under the title RAPTURE. A perfect name, if you ask me.

RAPTURE is an independent publication created, printed and designed by me, where I had the pleasure to explore several printing techniques: silkscreening, movable type, nylon print, and linoleum carving.</small?

In it I explore the little things that truly move us. Those moments that seem to touch the sublime. This particular issue of RAPTURE lives around the pleasure taken from the appreciation of the written word.

In order to explore this concept, I created a poster with a quote from Jorge Luis Borges that represented his love for reading. The postcards are a visual exploration of seven books that have some particular meaning to me, each one with the first sentence of each book printed on it’s back. The booklet contains essays from Pedro Ferreira revolving around the theme of reading and literature.

So, now that we know how the project came to be and its various pieces, I bet you are wondering about how it went in exploring the actual production.

These techniques can be pretty challenging, but the result is worth all the hard work. Since this was the first time I experimented with them, and being used to work in the neat digital printing world, I decided to embrace the small “errors” that these techniques present and make them part of the graphic approach.
