New year, new projects. In the last few months here at Manchester School of Art we have had some amazing stuff printed on our new Risograph machine. The Ris-O-Matic project is my attempt at trying to collate these Riso printed posters/publications/ephemera to create some kind of library, and also to eventually show in an exhibition. I am going to post all submissions here... risomatic.com
Submissions from students and staff at Manchester School of Art all welcome. (All work needs to have been printed on our Risograph machine!) Stick your name and email in pencil on the back and hand to me (Caitlin) in the Bindery (Room Cha004)
Please email email@example.com for more info :)
