Volume 1: 1968-1973
Printed on a Riso RZ390UI
9.5 x 11.75 in
Cougar Natural Smooth paper
Edition of 60 + 2 artist proofs
This volume was printed on a Risograph, whose lineage comes from the Mimeograph and Gestetner, two processes once used to print underground and alternative newsletters, magazines, and posters. Looking a lot like a copy machine, the Riso offers a do-it-yourself, economical process that prints one color of ink at a time using a thermal cut screen from a digital image.
Given the size and scope of The Positions and Situations Project, it will be printed in three separate volumes. Volume 2 will cover years 1974 to 1975, and Volume 3 will pick up the rest of 1975 and finish up in 1976, the final year of the Positions and Situations section and the beginning of the end of the Back-to-the-Land Movement.
