Riso Printed Notecards: Bauhaus
The Bauhaus movement was founded in 1919 by German architect Walter Gropius. A school of ideas, experimenting in applied arts, design, architecture, and educational methods. It was famous for the approach to design that it publicized and taught. The German term Bauhaus means ‘building a house" was also known as ‘School of Building’.
These charming folded notecards are printed in small batches by London-based Scout Editions on the risograph. The Risograph originated from Japan and was manufactured by the Riso Kagaku Corporation in 1980. It was intended to be used as a copier for high-volume needs in establishments such as schools, clubs, churches, colleges, and political campaigns. Born out of the mimeograph, the Risograph brought together several printing processes previously done manually. The Risograph uses plant-based ink and the machines are incredibly energy efficient with a minimum amount of waste. Riso means ideal in Japanese.
