Bulgarian Amulet Against Misfortune – A6 Lino Print on Handmade Paper Limited Edition of 5
The fifth print from the “Bulgarian Amulet Series” depicts the symbol for Good Dealings.
These peculiar amulets are inspired from Manuscript #646 from the Bulgarian National Library “St. st. Cyril and Methodius”. It was written in 1787 for a gentleman named Niketa and is a compilation of various text and stamp amulets for good fortune and protection against various evils. This series pays homage to this exotic written treasure and offers some artistic additions to the otherwise short compilation.
Each print is hand printed on brown handmade paper made by me, here in the bindery. It is made from various paper scraps resulting in a brownish interesting paper. The impression is done with Caligo Relief Inks – Rubine Red for the amulet and Burnt Sienna Hue for the frame. The print print variant is limited to 5 copies and only the first comes with a sterling silver pendant with the amulet stamp and a leather lace.
The total prints available for this amulet are 5 and are never to produced again.
The paper size is in small A6 format or 10.5 x 15 cm.
As each impression and piece of paper is done by hand, it’s to be expected for each print to be unique in its own particular way.
All prints are sent in a recyclable envelope and plastic bag for protection. Shipped and tracked by Bulgarian Posts. For Express shipping with DHL Express, please write using the contact form before purchase to recalculate shipping fees.
