Contact #1, Ltd. Edition Risograph Print
Exploring a yearning for different types of human contact in a lockdown world, this is one of three in a series of Risograph Prints by illustrator Pete Jordi Wood.
Riso printing is a form of printing developed in Japan that dates back to the late Twentieth Century. Using soy based inks, which have incredibly vibrant colours, a screen is created using rice paper, and the ink is pressed through it using a machine that uses low amounts of electricity. The sustainability of this process has meant that Risograph prints are experiencing something of a renaissance in recent years, and many illustrators have come to love the process. However, the machines are rare, and so Riso prints remain a relatively unusual type of print.
This print is sold without a frame, packaged with a greyboard backing in cellophane to protect it and delivered by mail in a cardboard tube.
It is size A3, and the largest in the series. Limited edition of just 25 prints.
Numbered and signed by the artist, each print has tiny variations and so each one is completely unique.
