Mizdruk



This book contains a collection of letterpress misprints. A love and dedication to letterpress is the foundation of this book. The fact that every printed copy is orginally handmade, providing each of the 25 copies with a different aspect, is as much about the medium itself and is what makes this book such a incredibly unique object. This is the reason why it is an essential part of our selection. Pages with text create good balance and give the viewer respite from all those color filled pages. Each page is created from folded prints and by leaving the spine open we can see vivid lines that tell us that the book is a kind of collection or archive. The design and approach also show us the beauty of the unexpected and unplanned mistakes and teaches us how to appreciate it. Unique color combinations, compositions and overprints show how much exploration is possible this technique and how these experimentations become the actual work. Besides the authenticity of letterpress and silkscreen techniques that render this book into an iconic object, the text poetically describing misprints and the analogue aspects of printing mistakes. We feel that it is interesting and important in the current digital age to see the beauty of craft and the allowance of mistakes in something so tangible as print, and this is what Mizdruk does.
