Meet the craftsmen of modern printing
Some people say printing is obsolete, but actually it’s become a medium for art. A couple of Sukle’rs were on press at Lithographix in Los Angeles last month. We printed an art book for Cochlear that expresses sound through the medium of print. It just returned from the bindery and it is loud and gorgeous. We were lucky to have some of the best artisans of the trade: Reggie, Chuck, Ron, Frank, Greg and Dennis, with Brian as copilot. They are the craftsmen of modern printing. Their tools — ink, paper, varnish, and of course, the Mitsubishi 8C CD, which is the size of a school bus, but even noisier. Hey, it’s only printing, but I like it.
