Screen-printed notebook

Since I bought my own screen-printing equipment last year, my flat has been a mess of rough prints and colour tests. Some I’ve kept and some have been lost to the recycling bin.

Since I bought my own screen-printing equipment last year, my flat has been a mess of rough prints and colour tests. Some I’ve kept and some have been lost to the recycling bin.

The one notebook that has remained is my Moleskine Craft, which has been used as a ‘make-­ready’ since my very first printing session at home. Every single thing I’ve printed has been screened onto it first, with regular scans posted to my blog.

There was no endgame to this behaviour – I just did it as I thought it could end up as an interesting record of my home printing. This made it all the more surprising to hear that Creative Review were interested in featuring it in Monograph.

It has evolved so much and has provided me with inspi­ration for choosing colour palettes for my other projects. The chance over-printing of inks has contin­ued to catch my eye, and I hope it catches yours too.
