Comprising an abstract narrative, the 210 books that make up the work tell the story of the printer’s skill, from his choice of paper, colours and format to the squeegee stroke, from the ink applied through the mesh to the mixture on the screen. Brutal or peaceful confrontation, relationship between tone and illusion, traces of the squeegee and the printing process, the two-coulour printed pages reveal all the nuances of this mixtures.
