POLLY’S PLAYGROUND



Birgit: The concept of Polly’s Playground is simple: artists playing with art. No preconceived goal or profit. The riso-printed book is exactly that: playful and simple. It shows the experiments that the artists did in black and white with tiny leaflets in color. The experiments themselves are diverse, with some more interesting than others.

Patrick: A good example of how you can handle a small budget. Due to the fact that it is self-bound, to make use of the risograph for the large pages and to add the color images separately means a very nice book has been made with little money.

Auke: You can call me a nitpicker. Little money or not. First spread: deep black clean printed typography. Second spread: bitmapped blurry text. I understand certain printing techniques have their limitations, but there are many ways so solve small details like this. Especially when you have mixed printing techniques at your disposal. That being said, I like how the big full-bleed black riso-printed pages leave some space for the imagination. This, in combination with the tiny full-color close-up pages depicting objects in the artspace give a fun representation of Polly’s Playground.

Ruby: I agree with my fellow judges. It’s a fun little publication. A playful project that resulted in a playful book.
