About ‹Atelier It Plein 19›

‘We’ as the «Atelier It Plein 19» may have begun as ‘my atelier’ in 1974 (with an etching press and one 52 x 76 cm letter press), but since 1985 it changed to be a joined atelier for three artists working very closely together (specialising in book making from idea, till finished book, and international presentation).
Since then this has not changed too much, only from the original three there is just me left active (over 67 now and not ‘too active’ as the FAG - letterpress is concerned; the poor thing is to be revised, but the entire atelier is in a state of ‘redoing’ in order to have it ready for (hopefully) a next generation / but surely to have it open to the public with a museum function (the machines and the actual work that comes from them).

About ‹Slow Print›

Slow Print is a small letterpress studio located in Helmond. It is a one-man operation and was established in 1999 with the purchase of a Heidelberg platen press. Later on I discovered the existence of the so-called proofing press. I purchased my press in Bremen, Germany.
