Water Flows – Pack of Riso Prints

In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so with present time.

– Leonardo Da Vinci

The flow of water is one of the hardest things to render, and through the course of history artists have come up with their own ways of capturing its shifting qualities. Each of the six art prints in this exquisite collection depicts the particular and universal characteristics of water in motion. Fluidly moving across a range of graphic styles, water drifts, gushes, trickles, and ripples across the surface of paper.

This set of prints is as versatile as the element they depict. Create a display wall with the complete set, or mix, match and combine them in different ways to tell your own story. Or let them speak for themselves, and put them up individually in any room.

These prints are made using environmentally friendly soy-based inks on a risograph machine. Tara Books is among the first to experiment with riso-printing on a commercial scale in India. The medium allows for transparencies and overlays that add layers and depth, making it especially suited for rendering these prints.
