While the authors have made most of their work, the screen-printing workshop is abuzz since yesterday.
Two projects are being printed : the booklet (or Zine, proposed by Chifoumi), and the fanzine, at the initiative of the authors.
The Zine cover has been printed, embossed, perforated and trimmed earlier this week.
The dream screen-printing team : Mimi, Sandra, Lucas, Romaric.
The authors’ works have been scanned and ‘cleaned’ before printing.
Renaud Thomas, who has been supervising the printing process, writing down corrections before validation.

And always last minute corrections…
All the typons are carefully assembled together.
Laura and Sandra make sure the colors are at the right place.
The first of the four frames necessary to print the Zine being exposed.
Precision, precision, precision !
The exposition quality being controlled.
Go! Mimi running the machine and Romaric, Laura and Beebee assisting.
The Zine is being printed since 8am this morning !
For the “other” fanzine, the same tasks and involvement are necessary to produce the 2 covers :
Pierre Ferrero finishing his contribution to the fanzine cover.
Benoît Preteseille too, with a brush and a light table.
Guillaume preparing the typon for the first color of the fanzine cover.
The screens are cleaned after exposition.
Check and double-check : any defect at this stage would degrade all the issues.

Stay tuned !
