Designers and artists are always on the lookout for new and distinctive printing techniques; today, more and more graphic design studios around the world are rediscovering Risograph technology, using it to give their work a vibrant, absolutely contemporary feel.
Risographs are at the forefront of a new wave of analogue printing. The book Risomania documents this unique and unexpected renaissance in graphic printing, as well as providing an overview of the history and development of these machines.
In addition, the book looks at other, earlier stencil-duplicating machines, which are also being used more and more widely, among them the Mimeograph and Spirit Duplicators. Filled with beautiful examples of print series, postcards, zines, yers, and other experimental prints, Risomania is an exciting and timely project.
