Hato Press: Risograph Specifications 

I have some sym­pa­thy for the Riso­graph peo­ple.  Their process isn’t like ours: using mov­able types, but they oper­ate with the same lim­i­ta­tions — a sin­gle colour each pass and a lim­it­ed means of reproduction.

This guide from the Hato Press explains the lim­i­ta­tions — and the qual­i­ties of Riso print­ing — beautifully.

I also stum­bled on this colour chart from Fredk. Aldous of Manchester –

Shipley Wayzgoose — Report

I had the plea­sure of vis­it­ing the first Ship­ley Wayz­goose organ­ised by the Paper­cut Bindery and the Print Project.  An excel­lent event!

Great to meet new peo­ple, like Pat Ran­dle; put faces to names like Nick Gill, Nick Hand with his Print­ing Bike, and David Armes from Tod­mor­den; and meet old friends like Gra­ham Moss and Chris­t­ian Brett.

Quite apart from the social the work on dis­play was tremen­dous and the oppor­tu­ni­ty to buy let­ter­press odds and sods could not be passed up.

Ship­ley’s Kirk­gate Cen­tre was a great venue and encour­aged one to linger with tea and a bun.

Ship­ley Wayz­goose: A hive of activ­i­ty with­in twen­ty min­utes of the doors opening!

Thanks to those that trav­elled from far and wide (and on bikes) to get to Ship­ley and espe­cial thanks to Roger Grech and Nick Loar­ing for organising.
