Risomania

Risomania

Risography, named after the Japanese firm Riso, is a stencil printing process based on screen printing techniques that was developed in the transition phase from mechanical to digital printing. Although the printer looks like a copying machine, the colors are transferred onto the paper without the use of heat or chemicals, saving energy and making the process ecologically friendly. Graphic artists and designers from around the world have now rediscovered the risograph for themselves - along with other machines for similar almost forgotten techniques such as mimeography -and sparked an unexpected renaissance of analog printing. A comprehensive introduction that addresses past, present and future is followed by an essay about the key pioneers in the contemporary risography scene. In the chapter Risoworld notable risography-oriented publishers, printers and design studies from around the world are presented. At the heart of the book are fabulous, hugely diverse examples such as postcards, magazines, posters, flyers and experimental printed products, all of which inspire by the force of their color, their unique textures and, above all, the perfectly imperfect authenticity of risography.

If Eight Hours Seem Too Few

If Eight Hours Seem Too Few

This book is the first to present a vivid and accurate picture of the thousands of women who worked weeding the rice fields in northern Italy during the early part of the nineteenth century. It explores a wide range of issues including the political, economic, and social history of Italy; labor legislation; the role of the judicial system; the sexual division of labor; family structure; class conflict between the rural proletariat and the politically influential capitalist farmers; work-related diseases; internal migration of labor; and child labor. The author provides penetrating insights into the Socialist Party's efforts to wrest women workers from the influence of the Catholic Church; the history of Italian feminism and the campaign for the vote; and finally, the workers' opposition to Italy's entrance into World War I. She analyzes the weeders' relations with labor organizers; their desire to preserve their autonomy; and their decisions regarding labor actions; and she highlights similarities between the weeders' experiences and those of other women workers and labor organizers in Europe and the U. S..

Drawing as design process

Drawing as design process

The theme of this book is drawing as a catalyst for the design process. Electronic creation and manufacturing of images in all the design professions has led to fundamental changes in the process of design. Many concepts based on the criteria of the handicrafts have lost their function as stylisitic informers within the education process. As a result, drawing has attained a new importance. Hand-drawn design work engages eye, head and hand in equal measure, and produces connections between the senses that the designer working on a computer monitor can still only partially experience. -- Dust Jacket.

The Origins of Nature Conservation in Italy

The Origins of Nature Conservation in Italy

Clichés about Italy are numerous. Henry James once wrote that Italy was tired of being admired for its eyelashes and its pose. Nowadays the country is trying to shake off a do-nothing image regarding nature conservation. But an environmental movement has existed in Italy for more than a century. In 1924, the chief naturalist of the U.S. National Park Service said that Italy was far ahead of the rest of Europe in protecting nature. By the outbreak of World War II, Italy had four national parks covering over five hundred thousand acres. Of course, a lot went wrong with Italian nature protection, too. Fascism, war, and the unbridled consumerism of the economic miracle sent conservation into a tailspin from which it only began recovering in the 1990s. This book is the first effort in English to document the rise, fall, and recovery of nature conservation in Italy. Part one covers the environmental degradation of Italy's wetlands, mountains, and forests due to unification, industrialization, and the rush toward modernization. Part two looks at the ups and downs of Italy's conservation movement in the 1900s: who were the players, what were their motives, where were they active, why did they succeed and sometimes fail?
