This book was made between July 2012 and April 2013 following a random screen-printing process.
Test prints are the resulting artefacts of colour and registration adjustments made when preparing to silkscreen.
They are sheets of paper slowly covered with inks from totally different projects, creating new images of their own.
The combination of design, colour and texture on a test print is unique. Indeed, no two test-prints alike usually.
We followed the same kind of random screen-printing process, but unusually this time for a book in an edition of 30.
It was constructed slowly, color by color, using screens made for other Palefroi projects (zines, Art prints, posters …).
By juxtaposing them on the page, paying attention to pattern and tone, we created entirely new compositions, out of their original context.

One of a kind book.
This book is made of entirely unique prints, created following a test-print process, by juxtaposing nearly random layers of colours originally made for others printing projects of Palefroi.
