Longhand Publishers, 2014

A collaborative book making installation.

At Longhand Publishers, visitors are invited to design pages for small publications that are being produced on the spot. People can create pages on 3 design workstations that were built using custom software and electronics. Every book that is being produced is completely unique, 'printed' on the spot by a home made drawing machine.

Longhand Publishers is an open playground: a set of possibilities and a set of constraints.



Designed and built at indianen with Andreas Depauw.
With the kind support of Graphic Design Festival Breda.‚Äč
