Risography is one tricky beast, and this zine does a great job of embracing the quirkiness from the technique and the unpredictability that comes with it.

Project Description

For the Common Good: Volume One is a 32-page risograph zine inspired by pre-war era film serials and dime novels. Dubbed "An Incomprehensible Tale of Espionage," the project is a love-letter to the unabashed sensationalism of spy fiction of the era.

Production Lesson(s)

Just learning to embrace the unpredictability of risograph printing. I originally had designed the book with a specific color palette in mind, but found it almost impossible to replicate exactly with the risograph inks. In the end, I like the outcome better than my original palette, so that was a nice surprise. ”
