Peter J Evans | Broken Telephone

We were asked to print the 12" record sleeves for Peter J Evans' piece Broken Telephone commissioned by BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art.

The fronts (500 for each of the four sleeves) were printed in a blend roll from photopolymer relief plates on an etching press. While the backs were printed on an Adana 5x8 letterpress.

The press arrived a little later than suggested. Thankfully the fork lift driver was able to hang on for us.

Many thanks to David Angus at RASKL for his fork lift powers. Peter Flynn, Nigel Easter & David Lawson for crate opening. Team RASKL for installation muscle. David Lawson for photography

Takach Press | Workshop preparation

With the impending arrival of the new press the workshop has to be ready to allow access for the frame. Some of the benches and partiation walls needed to be moved, but most of all the door needed to come off. Luckily we were able to gain the extra 3.5 inches required.
