Portuguese Illustration is the first publication of Colher which aims to boost portuguese illustration by showcasing the work of the most talented Portuguese illustrators and also non-portuguese who have had an academic or professional experience in Portugal. Confined to a special edition of 200 copies, this project stands out for its innovative printing technique, risography held by London’s oldest printing company specialised in this type of printing – Ditto Press. Apart from a texture of its own, risography also allows the use of special colours, and Colher chose a garish and captivating fluorescent orange that gives other brilliance to the illustrations. Curated by Eurico Sá Fernandes and co-supported by Coworking Lisboa and Colher. Available here.
