To experiment with recent developments in digital printing, Print/Press (Nadine Rotem-Stibbe and Oliver Barstow) commissioned 12 artists/designers from around the world to participate in the making of a 2019 calendar. Each contributor was given one calendar month to produce a design that works with the principles of variable data. Characteristic of digital printing, variable data allows for the reproduction of unique multiples in a single print run. As a result of this process, each contributor made 12 variables for each calendar month, which made up the final print run of 144 calendars.
The research for Print/Press was commissioned by the PublishingLab, and realised by Oliver Barstow & Nadine Rotem-Stibbe.
