How did we produce this unusual issue? Well, it’s all down to Swiss creative Marcus Kraft and his hands-on skill. He drew four different motifs and, actually during the printing process itself, continued to work on these motifs – changing the colours, ink flow and quantities, spraying with water drops and making scratches on the printing plate. The resulted in lots of intriguing variants on geometric forms.
For this production we at novum and Marcus Kraft took inspiration from classical lithographic printing. We also used this technique for a limited edition of art prints of the cover motif, and here, too, Wolfensberger AG was our expert partner.
Some of these numbered lithographic prints (only 50 have been produced) are going to be given away in a draw to lucky novum readers. To enter, readers simply photograph their own personal copy of the March issue of novum, post it at #novum-magazine and send the editors (firstname.lastname@example.org) the link by 10 March 2017. Then their names will automatically go forward to the prize draw.
