Portfolio > Paper Quilts

I created a collagraph plate from old postage stamps, printed it in multiple colors, then pieced it back together with thread. Within the sections of the paper quilt, I placed sillhouettes found in vintage photographs. They were cut from photo polymer intaglio prints that I made from postcards that were written to my great-grandmother in the early 1900's.
