Colour Proof
Makoto Yamada
Banana Books, 2018
48 letterpress prints
Case-bound by hand
Edition of 12
Recently acquired by the Yale University Arts Library.

An incredible new book by long-time LCBA studio member Makoto Yamada; a practice in experimentation and dedication. Hand printed on the FAG Swiss Proof 40, and hand bound in an edition of 12. A project that took 18 months to complete, Makoto restricted herself to a single design (a set of 16 rectangles) to create 48 different letterpress prints in infinite colour combinations; layering as many as 12 colours in a single print.
