Where all the magic happens. The risograph machine looks like an ordinary copy machine but it uses a similar principle as screen printing, where ink is pushed through little holes. But it’s a lot quicker and cleaner, once you have figured out how to prepare your layers and which settings you want to use.
On the wall the very blue image in the middle is mine and the one with the chair and ladder (swipe for a close up). You might also recognise work made by @melissa.castrillon, @hwillustrator, @doodleyboo and @signeit.
Layers for ‘When Sadness Comes to Call’ (published by @andersenpress) have been made with the risograph machine, but as colours are so limited, we (art director Beccy Garrill, editor Libby Hamilton and me) chose to select our own colours and have them printed in exact Pantone colours (rather than the usual CMYK). I love this extra care that went into the production of the book, it’s details like this that can make a big difference.
