Original Intaglio Prints Fine Art Maps

The intaglio print gets its name from the verb "tagliare" in Italian, which means ‘to cut’ or ‘to carve’. Intaglio describes a traditional printmaking process whereby a plate is carved, inked, and put under the pressure of a press to create an impression on paper. The process produces a unique quality of line that registers even the finest detail and that invariably creates a rich and complex texture on paper. The process is entirely hand-done, and produces an image that can then be painted, inked, embossed or otherwise modified to create a one-of-a-kind monoprint, as is the case with our maps.

Original Intaglio Prints (Collector’s Prints) are part of various private and museum collections, and are often exhibited through galleries or commissioned directly from Fine Art Maps™. If you are interested in purchasing any of our Collector's Prints or in commissioning Fine Art Maps™ for a specific project, we would be delighted to hear from you at originalart@fineartmaps.com.

The one-of-a-kind richness of our maps complements our clients’ specifications and invariably results in unique and captivating maps to be treasured for many generations.
