Xavier Antin, A Short History of Production

I read about this project by Xavier Antin (France) on another print blog recently,
and thought you printmakers might like it too.

The result is a book printed through a printing chain made of four desktop printers
each one using different colors and technologies:
Stencil duplicator (1880), Spirit duplicator (1923), Laser printer (1969), Inkjet printer (1976)

Xavier Antin (France), Just in Time (or A Short History of Production), 2010
Installation and book, 42 pages, 210 x 297 mm, 100 copies 

which shows the book (containing images of print production) that was produced.

It's quite a nice idea, and I love the rawness of it as an installation too!
