Being in love with imperfection is being in love with the limits of accuracy, the print marks and the tracks marks from the paper feeding rollers that appear in riso images. The risography is a subculture and a printing method with a very peculiar and unique aesthetic with whom a lot of artist, designers, creative and bookmakers have fallen in love. Riso printing is quick, cheap and great!!! And there is so many people using and promoting this process which combines old and new technologies to produce print work.

The importance of design for festival posters is becoming increasingly relevant when they are displayed in different cities. Their communication techniques are extremely effective, seeking a relationship between art and modernity, directly focusing on their target. The key point in the advertising and communication of different festivals that we present centers on the corporate image and on its advertising. In recent years, advertisers, copywriters and illustrators have teamed up to offer within an image all the information needed to catch the attention of the public. We highlight the works of: Paula Bonet, Studio Muti, Invisible Creature, Alexis Bukowski, Studio Fnt, Quim Marin, Yeji Yun, and Lawerta.

The mere mention of the title Star Wars can evoke all kinds of feelings and memories in a person. The distant trilogy that thrilled everyone in the late 70’s and early 80’s, the highly criticized prequels from the early 2000’s and now the new sequels, are just added fuel to make the work of George Lucas shine dazzlingly in our lives. This book is an illustrated tribute to the fictional universe created by George Lucas, in which you will find 40 portraits of its most outstanding characters, such as Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Leia Organa, Han Solo, Yoda, Chewbacca, R2-D2, C-3PO, Rey, Stormtrooper, Wilhuff Tarkin... and besides, 60 unpublished alternative posters! Twenty-seven artists from around the world show us their most personal vision through one or more illustrations, expressing in a sentence what Star Wars means to them. In this way, many artists achieve their desire to share their life and work, along with that of Star Wars, returning the favour to what inspires them and in turn becoming part of the legend, for a long, long time. “The Force will be with you. Always.” Obi-Wan Kenobi

Recognised internationally as one of the twentieth century's great modernist innovators, New Zealand artist Len Lye is most famous for his avant-garde experimental films and for his astonishing and playful kinetic sculptures. Always fascinated by the interplay of movement and light, this extraordinary artist also expressed himself in photography, drawing, painting and poetry. During his lifetime he was better known in the art capitals of North America and Europe than in the country of his birth, but that has changed since the establishment of the foundation dedicated to his works at New Plymouth’s Govett-Brewster Art Gallery and particularly following the opening, in 2015, of the impressive and much-admired Len Lye Centre. In this timely collection of essays, New Zealand and overseas writers consider Lye’s assured place in modern art from a variety of fascinating and thought-provoking angles. He thought of his creations as emerging from ‘the long dream of waking’. And thanks to this richly illustrated collection of essays, we too can be drawn into his long dream and come to see his remarkable achievements through fresh eyes.
