To avoid repetition, and to fully understand this project, you must read the right side column of this post — there you will read where this multi-part book comes to be, and how it all comes together. I am absolutely intrigued by the content, the format, and most of all the premise.

Project Description

In 2015, LpW worked over the theme "Popular dance". That happened during the day when the participants, divided into groups, printed a booklet about music and dance. In the night the printshop turned into a dance hall and Sardinian tambourines, milongas, Renaissance costumes and instruments, sambas, tangos and mazurkas filled Leoncavallo’€™s theatre space with music and dance. The artist book tries to recreate, in a different way, that mood.

It is divided in three parts: an introduction set up in Monotype and printed with a Windmill Heidelberg, a second part, where Dance herself speaks, printed in Risograph and a third part of letterpress artworks made by various participants of the both '15 and '16  LpW editions .

Production Lesson(s)

Working with two different printing processes has been very stimulating and satisfying!”
