Just in Time

Oh, man. I came across Xavier Antin’s Just in Time, or A Short History of Production over on Luke Strosnider’s blog Touching Harms the Art yesterday and I can’t stop thinking about it. What an interesting idea! The print-geek in me is definitely coming out right now.

From Xavier Antin’s website: “A book printed through a printing chain made of four desktop printers using four different colors and technologies dated from 1880 to 1976. A production process that brings together small scale and large scale production, two sides of the same history. MAGENTA (Stencil duplicator, 1880) CYAN (Spirit duplicator, 1923) BLACK (Laser printer, 1969) YELLOW (Inkjet printer, 1976)”
