Lambe Lambe

Madrid based street artist El Tono has been travelling through Latin America, staging shows and making things happen. He just announced a new series of posters he created in Brasil using "Lambe lambe," a traditional print system from Sao Paulo usually used to advertise music shows.

The posters are created with a large woodblock print and blended ink on heavy weight paper. The cool posters are for sale, but possibly even more exciting is this short movie from his site that shows the printing process. Lovely.
