Some Problems with Red, Encountered by Russell Maret While Daydreaming in His Studio and Here Explored With the Aid of Multichromatic Letterpress, 2016
Five short texts about the difficulties of describing and reproducing colour, each of which is paired with an illustration. As the title suggests, the book is a whimsical project that grew out of RM’s ‘General Color Theory’ in 'AEthelwold Etc'. In it Maret continues his recent exploration of alternatives to the photopolymer image-making techniques that he has been using for the last eight years.
100 copies printed on Zerkall paper, bound by Craig Jensen, and housed in a plexiglass slipcase.
