Julio Plaza: Design Process: 20 Serigrafias Originales Firmadas y Numeradas. Textoemas C. Ferlauto [Design Process: 20 Original Serigraphs Signed and Numbered, Textoemas C. Ferlauto]
Plaza, Julio and Claudio Ferlauto
Julio Plaza — Brazilian, born in Spain, 1938-2003) arrived in Sao Paolo in 1973 and worked in folded and altered paper. He was a beloved member of the art scene, especially the local neo-concrete art & poetry movement, and a professor. This rare collection of serigraphs was produced while Plaza taught in Mayaguez in the late 1960s. Examples of even individual prints are scarce on the market, and here we have the complete set, each one signed in pencil at rear (& numbered 13/100) by Plaza and additionally signed on the colophon which, along with four other text pages, was created by the noted graphic designer Claudio Ferlauto. Each thick heavy sheet is 25 cm square. This edition is number 13 of only 100 copies produced. All sheets in VG plus condition with minor age-toning & some foxing to edges not affecting images. The printed slipcase while extant is in poor condition, flattened, chipped and with some pieces missing. It reads Julio Plaza Sign Process although this text does not appear on colophon itself. Extremely rare. Additional photos upon request.
