Book Book brings back Office Offset

Office Offset describes fully capable miniature offset presses, which were for nearly 20 years an inherent part of the office environment. These days not only the machines but also the history of this technology is completely forgotten. The rediscovery of those Office Offset machines marks a new era of experimental offset printing. By combining current technologies with the decontextualization of the usage, Book Book transfers a former duplication technology into an experimental printing technique, which generates magnificent results and offers a vast amount of options to work with.

Some features which makes Office Offset such a unique process:
– Possibility to print originals in high quantities 
– Offset print quality
– Working right-reading on the printing plate 
– Various options to imprint the plates, either analogue or digital
– Printing up to 150lpi screen ruling
– Special Office-Offset Flexoprinting technique
