This a really nice idea from artist Xavier Antin, who has printed a book using 4 generations of printer. Starting in the 1800’s, all the way up to the 1970s. The prints looks great:
A book printed through a printing chain made of four desktop printers using four different colors and technologies dated from 1880 to 1976. A production process that brings together small scale and large scale production, two sides of the same history.
MAGENTA (Stencil duplicator, 1880)
CYAN (Spirit duplicator, 1923)
BLACK (Laser printer, 1969)
YELLOW (Inkjet printer, 1976)
