The Other Book 2019

SPONSORED BY

The first edition of The Other Book (29 November – 1 December 2019) is devoted to the Riso revolution: artists' books produced with Risograph and Mimeograph stencil duplicators.


The Other Book is a non-profit initiative, free and open to the public. The festival aims to increase the visibility of artists' books and artistic publications: books that are self- or independently published. Over the course of three days, The Other Book provides a platform for artists, publishers, print rooms, collectives, art libraries, collectors and book enthusiasts.
By partnering with local artists and initiatives, and providing a stage for both local and (inter)national artists, The Other Book serves as a place of exchange. The extensive program explores artistic practices, conceptual publications and the seemingly endless possibilities of the artist book.

RISO REVOLUTION

The Risograph is a digital stencil duplicator that produces attractive prints with intense colors. Introduced in the late eighties, the technique was originally intended for quick and efficient printing for schools, churches and small businesses. It was the successor of mimeographs such as the Gestetner,

low-cost stencil duplicators that produce prints by forcing ink through a stencil onto paper. Today, the Risograph has been embraced by artists, graphic designers, and publishers as a sustainable, versatile and cheap printing method. The Risograph machine looks a bit like a photocopier, but the process is similar to screen printing. Each color is printed separately with ink that tends to leak color, causing small imperfections and irregularities in multicolor prints. Art bookmakers love stencil duplicators precisely for their tactile quality and unpredictable nature.
