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).

Studio: Au Chiffon d'encre, Meslin-l'Evêque, Belgium

Michel Xavier on the FAG Control 800: ‹I bought this press as a second owner in 2001. It had a lot of surface rust when I go it. I did some restorations on it and I repainted the machine black.

I use this press on a daily base in my studio. Besides of the FAG Control 800, I also use a Heidelberg KSBA, a tabletop LMW American No.8, a Dainippon Screen KF 124-GL (that is pretty similar to the FAG), a Krause litho press and a huge Julien litho press and an Artley gravure press.›
