Model: FAG Control 405

Studio: Stamperia 74b, Milano, Italy

Gianluca Craca on the FAG Control 405: ‹As a print studio, we're using this press in many different ways, based on the idea of the artist that could be a typographic poster or a xilography with many colors. But, most of the time, we simply use it as a table! In general the objective of a FAG is to create editions of many copies and this doesn't happen really often. But all the time that's a chance, we're so happy to race it!›
