Risobook 1: Weird Science
Risobook 1: Weird Science was the first instalment of the Risobook open-call publishing project. An open-call was made in Spring 2018, calling for artwork on the theme of “weird science”.
The response to the open-call was fantastic with a very diverse collection of submissions received from near and far! In the end, 47 entries were included in the exhibition and book.
The exhibition took place in October 2018 at Artefact projects in Stirchley (Birmingham, UK), where poster versions of the artworks were hung in the gallery space. The exhibition was really popular, with a very busy opening night party, and lots of heart-warming comments from the visitors throughout the month long exhibition.
The book features a spiral-bound binding, and showcases the diverse, colourful, and playful spirit of Risograph printing. More importantly, it demonstrates the creativity and talent of the people who contributed and made the first book such an unmitigated success!
The book was printed in a limited edition of 150 copies and is available to purchase below.
