Wood engraving

Stéphane Guilbault has printed the woodcuts of Jeremy Kapone's drawings from the book Carnet de visage.

STÉPHANE GUILBAUD studied at the Fine Arts School in Paris and started working as a lithographer at the Atelier Desjobert in Paris in 1979. For fifteen years, he was the head of the Atelier Arts Litho, where he offered his expertise to numerous artists, gallery owners and international publishers, particularly American and Chinese. He has worked alongside contemporaries such as Zao Wou Ki, Pierre Alechinsky, Oliver Debré, Francis Bacon, Arman... A member of the Grands Ateliers de France, Stéphane Guilbaud continues to pursue this same energy today, having had the honour in 2010 of receiving the title of Master of Art; he also strives to train those who will bear the very special responsibility of accompanying a work of art, an image in the making.

Under the luminous stone vaults of the prestigious Viaduc des Arts, in the heart of the twelfth arrondissement of Paris, the Atelier dedicates its space and its know-how to printmaking techniques. On stone, metal or wood, with a hand press or from the top of the hundred-year-old Voirin press and its 80 x 120 cm format, a whole part of the history of art printing is on display. It is also, and above all, in order to be at the service of today's contemporary creation. It is against this backdrop that Jeremy Kapone is making his engravings for the "carnet de visage" project.



Quatre Couleurs printed volume 1 of "Carnet de Visage" in the south-west of France in collaboration with Escourbiac, in order to reduce its carbon footprint by manufacturing locally in an eco-responsible way.

The printing works Escourbiac a obtained at 2003 the Imprim'vert certification. Three times winner of the Cadrat golden (2003/2009/2014) Escourbiac is now out of competition: a printing works cannot obtain more than three trophies of this type. The printing works a lined its surface production in 2019, thanks à a new building entirely covered with photovoltaic panels.


Sustainable leather goods

When art meets craftsmanship. The talented Jika has succeeded in magnifying the Thalie bags by giving them a setting worthy of the brand, a pioneer in sustainable luxury leather goods.
Jeremy's drawings feature elements of the THALIE brand language (the Florentine lily from the designer's terrace symbolising rebirth, Thaleia written in Ancient Greek (La Florissante), the mirror-like columns inspired by Brancusi in the VR showroom, the THALIE muse in the bas-relief by Janniot in the Palais de Tokyo, and the dancer Cléo de Mérode...).
