Les impressions magiques

Offset print, lithographic mark-making techniques, 25.5 x 16.5 cm, 28 pages

We started working on offset printing experiments while we were designing with Körner union and Tatiana Rihs a pedagogic booklet, called Acid Test.

During our stay in the atelier of the Federal Office of Culture in New York, we designed directly in the print shop a booklet called "Les impressions magiques" using the quadrichromic system (cmyk) and other colors. The interventions were made directly on the offset plate using several tools and chemical processes, based on the ancient lithography techniques and advanced technology of offset printing. All the process was analogical and irreversible, from crop marks to overprinting. The design process became almost a part of the production.
