Jean-Paul Marchal

Recueil pour servir la médecine tibétaine: a very original publication by Jean-Paul Marchal, printmaker and printer, since he created it all almost by himself, other than the text on medicine and the clichés of the old Tibetan prints («for the protection of a fraction of the Human Heritage», says doctor Lobsang Wangyal). He draws and cuts the images (woodcuts), typesets, sets the layout, prints every composition in his manual press. The 50 copies of the Recueil pour servir la médecine tibétaine (Collection for the illustration of Tibetan medecine), are printed on velin de Rives paper. A hard case contains unstitched and unnumbered 36 pages, a folded woodcut 50 cm x 50 cm and a silk ceremonial scarf (khata).
