Exhibition 2017


Sunday 1st October
Rebellion printer Jan-Willem van der Looij will be presenting his contemporary letterpress printed posters and new booklet at the fair on Sunday October 1st. Come and see some live printing too!
While lacking all rigid rules of graphic design combined with a deep love for imperfection a lot of printed shit is created at his 'Mizdruk' printshop in Eindhoven. 'Ink it, don't think it' is what this is all about. Typo enlightenment and a maximalism in print is what pops up first. Printing is done in the good old Gutenberg tradition using wood and lead type. Inking is definitely not limited to black.
