An extraordinary workshop is being prepared with Ricardo Castro from O Homem do Saco’ (The Boggeyman) association, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Invisible Circus of the Diggers, in 1967. The Boggeyman is an atelier of typography and of independent editions. It makes editions of a limited number of copies in typography of moveable characters, but also uses digital or offset fingerprints for editions with bigger print runs. At other times, it mixes different printing techniques (collage, rerouting, dripping, scotch tape, monitypes). There are several editorial seals in this association.

More info soon!

Um extraordinário workshop está a ser preparado em parceria com Ricardo Castro, da associação O Homem do Saco, com vista à comemoração do cinquentenário de O Circo Invisível dos Diggers, em 1967.  O Homem do Saco é um atelier de tipografia e edições independentes. Realiza edições de algumas dezenas de exemplares em tipografia de caracteres móveis, mas também recorre a impressões digitais ou offset em edições de maior tiragem. Outras vezes, mistura diferentes técnicas de impressão (colagem, desvio, gotejamento, fita adesiva, monotipias). Existem várias chancelas editoriais nesta associação.
