Colorful covers made out of test prints entice one to look closer, and what a fun surprise it must be to open the book and find we can use that color inspiration to fill in the blanks.

Project Description

Maya Drozdz of VisuaLingual curated an exhibit with the Cincinnati-based non-profit organization Visionaries & Voices, which provides artistic, cultural, and professional opportunities for artists with disabilities. Approximately 60 V&V artists created black and white images which were then "colored in" by outside artists, designers and illustrators using a variety of media, including paint, fabric and video. The exhibit is currently on display at the V&V Gallery at 3841 Spring Grove Ave. in Cincinnati.

All of the original black and white work has also been documented in an exhibition catalog that takes the form of a coloring book, along with b/w artwork that was generously contributed by other artists, including Eleanor Grosch, Dan Funderburgh, Ed Fella, Matthew Walsh and others. Maya Drozdz designed the catalog with over 80 pages of b/w art, ready for coloring. It was printed in an edition of 200, each with a unique screenprinted cover made out of chipboard that's layered with test prints from the VisuaLingual studio. The catalog is for sale for $20 through the V&V online store, and all proceeds benefit the organization and its artists.

Production Lesson(s)

The effect of a chunky black screenprint on top of layered test prints looks great, but the printing surface is actually dimensional from all the layers of ink and presents quite a challenge.”
