There was a great display of riso guides, collected by We Make It, Berlin. A shop selling an amazing mix of riso publications, print and stationery.
And a raffle where two lucky ladies won themselves a riso MZ 770 + drums!
Prior to the weekend, there was a workshop week based out of the Charles Nypels Lab, where six unique pairings of ‘artist + printer’ were teamed up. Each worked together to produce a section of a publication that will be made at the end of the project. The book was inspired by Willem Sandberg’s Quadrat-Prints NU; a series of print experiments over fields of graphic design, plastic arts, literature, architecture and music.
These were never intended to be sold, and were presented as gifts to clients and friends of the printer, Steendrukkerij de Jong & Co. and issued in limited editions of 2,000 copies.
We have just received our very own copy of the book produced as part of Magical riso 2016.
