About the artist:
This year, Delgado received the Riccio Residency, which is bestowed by the Virginia Center for the Book on illustrators, printers, or book artists dedicated to creating community and promoting vibrancy in the book arts, for her contributions in publishing and printing. Through her studio La Impresora, which she founded in 2016 and co-directs with colleague Amanda Hernández, Delgado amplifies the works of BIPOC artists and creates a community around literature and independent books across Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. With a heavy focus on contemporary literature that strengthens the link between written and visual arts, Delgado’s La Impresora engages new readers by publishing affordable, beautifully crafted handmade books.
In addition to her work in publishing, Delgado is also a renowned poet. She is widely regarded as one of the leading Puerto Rican writers of her generation. Delgado continues to use her success to bring together artists, activists, and writers from across the Americas.
