Paulson FontaIne Press specializes in limited edition intaglio prints. The press emerged from the San Francisco Bay Area’s rich tradition of fine art printmaking. Paulson Fontaine Press’s philosophy is to facilitate rather than direct an artist, creating an environment where artists can do their best work.
In January of 1997, the press launched its first publication with four-color etchings by Christopher Brown. Since then, Paulson Bott Press has published nearly 500 editions with more than 35 artists including Tauba Auerbach, Ross Bleckner, Isca Greenfield-Sanders, the Quilters of Gee’s Bend, Kerry James Marshall, and Martin Puryear.
