It’s been a busy few months for the New Impressions project.
Our 16 designers submitted their work and then it was superbly printed by Page Bros on Fedrigoni Materica paper. Next: our first event at the Norfolk Heritage Centre, The Forum Norwich. For one day only, the public had the opportunity to view the results of our designs alongside selected Renaissance books from the archive.
Paul Wolterink, dutch designer and welcome migrant was delighted to share his work for New Impressions and explain his process of screen-printing using Colman mustard as yellow ink.
Tom and Sophie from Unlocking the Archive were supported by an expert team of UEA colleagues, enjoying the opportunity to explain the value and importance of the Renaissance books on show.
Everyone involved were pleased with the event which welcomed over 260 visitors.
And the designers for New Impressions had time for a group shot too (inspired by a famous LP cover).
