Riso Guide

For most people, a standard office copy machine may not inspire much creativity. However, the Japanese-designed Risograph printer from the ‘80s is no ordinary workplace appliance. Fast and easy to use, the bulky, gray machine was originally intended for offices and schools. However, today's artists with a curiosity for vintage technology have now turned the Risograph into a printmaking phenomenon.
This guide describes the origins of Riso and provides users with a comprehensive guide from the perspective of machine anatomy, color range, ink capability and the use of Riso in different contexts.
