Para Fukuda

BICeBé 2009 La Paz, Bolivia

Above: My small contribution to the BICeBé 2009 exhibition, “Hommage to Shigeo Fukuda: 76 Designers for his 76 years.” Part of the upcoming biennial taking place in La Paz in November, 2009, I was humbled and grateful to be invited to participate by Susana Machiado and David Criado (BICeBé 2009). A thousand thanks.

The poster was completed in April and, due to the incredible generosity and expertise of Dan Ibarra (Aesthetic Apparatus), I am simply overjoyed to report that we screenprinted a series of these recently. More details to follow.

Above: It’s all in the knees. Sorry for the poor quality of this snapshot, there are several images of the printing process here on Geotypografika Flickr. I’ll try to get more info out soon on the edition number and possible availability. Again, a thousand thanks to Dan for lending his mastery and care to this project.

In other news, postings have been scarce these past few days, my apologies. The basement studio is not yet fully operational.
