Print, but not as we know it
Materials, Process, PrintBy Daniel Mason
Laurence King, £25
This is one of nearly 50 case studies of contemporary print projects, by designers including Mark Farrow, Spin, M/M (Paris) and Giampietro+Smith, included in Daniel Mason’s book, Materials, Process, Print (Laurence King, £25). This handbook of materials and production techniques demonstrates how processes such as foil-blocking and box-making have been used to create work that steps outside the world of conventional print.
Designed in a direct, functional style by Saturday, the book has big double-page spread photographs of the work, with larger-than-life details that bring every die-cut edge and blob of silkscreen ink alive. SE
