In 2012 the University of Sunderland’s Foundation Art & Design course celebrated the creation of its first publication. The project drew the students and staff into an exciting project which involved a broad range of research and discussion resulting in a unique limited edition print object.
The students selected and presented projects from across their Foundation year that they felt were significant in the development of their ideas and processes. The book, produced using Risograph printing by London based Hato Press, was the first object to be created by Foundation Press. A team of six students were commissioned to work on additional editorial content and artwork for the publication, contributing the covers, a scheme of internal motifs and several editorial pages which present experiences from the year that have shaped their research and development. The 300 editions were delivered in pages and bound and editioned by a student production line, ready to be distributed at the opening of the final show.
