<NO MAGIC IN RISO>
It took 850 days, 74 tubes of soy ink, 15 colors, 660 masters, 690,000 sheets of paper, 3 fans, 2 riso printers, and 4 people to complete a book – a 360 page book that only talks about 1 thing. The thing that is always the most fascinating is “Process”. The processes and experiences that did not have the chance to appear in the pages of this book can only be quantified, converted, and recorded into words.
<NO MAGIC IN RISO> is the result of 2 years of image separation studies and experiments, and is the second book published by O.OO, continuing the spirit and purpose of <Imperfection Booklets> published 3 years ago. Instead of using wordy descriptions, we hope that readers can feel the wonders of Risograph printing through the details of the design in the book. Whether you are a designer, an artist, or an illustrator, anyone interested in color can use this book to enter the field with ease.
The methods discussed in this book are not the one and only, and are not absolute. Everyone’s way of experimenting is different, and this book just offers our experience as a tool. Without the participation of people, the technology is plain and void of charm. Thus, the title NO MAGIC IN RISO.
<NO MAGIC IN RISO>是經過兩年的影像分色研究、實驗的結果，也是O.OO時隔3年後出版的第二本書，延續了<Imperfection booklets>的宗旨，比起冗長的文字敘述，我們更希望透過書中設計的細節，讓讀者用直覺去感受Risograph印刷的巧妙之處，不管是設計師、藝術工作者、插畫家，任何對色彩有興趣的人都能透過這本書以更輕鬆的狀態走進這個領域。
這本書裡提到的方法沒有絕對也不是唯一，只是實驗的方式不同，它能提供給的只有經驗。在有人的參與之前，技術本身是沒有魅力的，所以NO MAGIC IN RISO。
