When designers are able to make their own letters, they also should be able to design and produce their own paper and ink. In order to understand and experiment with the concept of letters, colour, and paper, it is necessary to learn about these things – after all, they are the cornerstones of good design. This book is a self-initiated DIY project by Amsterdam-based designer Mark van Wageningen that is intended as a blueprint for all designers who wish to be self-sufficient or even recycle their own designs. By proposing a new standard for polychromatic typography using plant-based ink and recycled paper, he aims to inspire the pursuit of different approaches to graphic design.
