Handmade CMYK

Evelin Kasikov, an artist and designer working in London pointed me to her tactile work of handmade prints. I have fallen in love with her handmade CMYK. I am sure this will make printers chuckle.

CMYK embroidery is a hand-made printing process, based on computer generated halftone screens. Images are halftoned according to conventional screen angles: Cyan 105, Magenta 75, Yellow 90 and Black 45. Dot screens are the transformed into cross-stitch screens, printed on paper and marked for embroidery. Evelin uses cotton threads in CMYK colours; the intensity of colour depends on the number of strands used. The final outcome is a printed page created by hand.
