The Book of Print

The Book of Print

The Book of Print was a collaboration with the whole class to create and produce a book from scratch using a risograph printer. This process had us learn and understand the art of printing and all the back end work that goes into a single book, from the editing of the content files to the assembly of the book.

Each student was assigned a different topic to research, relating to the printing process. We then had to write and design graphics that would help explain as well as work with the limitations of the risograph printer. The topic I was given was the bleed area and trim marks of a page and the colour bars and printing plates.
