the Collected History of Printing

This is absolutely amazing. It's an installation AND consequently a book (as a kind of buy-product) by artist Xavier Antin. The book is printed through a chain made of four printers each with its own colour and each from a different period of technological design, dating between 1880 and 1976. I can't help feeling like this is a brilliant idea that I can't believe hasn't been explored before. And of course, you can buy the book.

MAGENTA (Stencil duplicator, 1880)
CYAN (Spirit duplicator, 1923)
BLACK (Laser printer, 1969)
YELLOW (Inkjet printer, 1976)

His website is full of wonders.
