Mount Street Printers have collaborated with leading paper manufacturer Fedrigoni UK and creative workshop Makerie Studio on ‘Make Your Mark’, a new installation at their store in the heart of Mayfair which commemorates their 40th Anniversary and celebrates the art of printing. The installation will be on view until 1st June 2021.
Since 1981, Mount Street Printers have produced fine stationery and printed materials using techniques that balance traditional craftsmanship with the latest technology. Taking inspiration from the printing presses dating back 80 years that have been collected and carefully restored by the printers, Makerie Studio have created an intricate, three-dimensional sculpture of an antique printing press made entirely using Fedrigoni paper. The installation brings to life the complex mechanisms found within each of the presses and is an ode to craftsmanship.
Makerie Studio, who specialise in crafting intricate sculptural works from fine and rare paper, studied the printing machines which have been collected and carefully restored by the family. The resulting installation brings to life the complex mechanisms found within each of the presses and that lend handmade print their distinctive finish and quality.
