Forget the latest desktop printer from HP or Epson, what you need is a new miniature printing press designed by the traveling open source design studio Letterproeftuin out of the Netherlands. Created for the International Poster and Graphic Design Festival Chaumont earlier this year, the miniature screen and letter printing presses were created so that Letterproeftuin could create smaller prints while on location at printing shows. While it doesn’t look like they have any plans to mass produce the presses I imagine such a thing could be extremely popular these days. See much more here. (via Quipsologies, Printeresting)

Drypoint Prints by Angie Hoffmeister

December 5, 2011

I’m in love with these stunning drypoint prints by Düsseldorf-based artist Angie Hoffmeister. Drypoint is a printmaking technique in the intaglio family where images are etched onto a plate using a sharp metal or diamond point. Give anything some extra eyes and I’m usually a fan, but there’s also something about using a more traditional and laborious printmaking technique to make such intriguing imagery that I really respect.

Publish or Perish was a 2009 show at Mark Moore Gallery in Santa Monica featuring absurdly detailed sculptures and prints by artist Kiel Johnson. This printing press is particularly awesome. (via yewknee)
