Risomania

The New Spirit of Printing

_About the renaissance of analog printing
_Profound introductory overview
_Focus on contemporary Risography culture
_With many visual examples

The Risograph printer is at the forefront of a new creative explosion. More and more artists and designers all over the world are rediscovering this stencil duplicator for themselves, sparking a unique and unexpected renaissance in analogue printing. And Risography is just the most prominent technique in a new wave of cutting-edge contemporary design, one that is also recuperating forgotten technologies such as the Gestetner and the mimeograph.

“Risomania” is the first book to document and discuss this groundbreaking global scene, looking at the history, present and future of the Riso, as well as featuring a range of artists, design studios and print shops who use it. At the heart of the volume are fabulous, hugely diverse examples of Riso-printing, including postcards, magazines, posters, flyers, and experimental printed products, all of which inspire through vivacity of colour, unique textures and, above all, the perfectly imperfect authenticity of Risography.
