Unlike any other printer the human printer creates unique, individual images each time it prints. Following the same process as a digital printer, the human printer generates the printed product by hand. Throughout the printing process the human printer assumes the role of the machine and is therefore controlled and restricted by the process of using CMYK halftones created on the computer.

At a flea market I bought this small box with little cards in it. This is 'Ripolin' said the woman who sold it to me. I nodded as if I knew what she meant, but truth was I didn't know what she was talking about. I just liked the colours and the other cards in the box.
So, once home, I looked up Ripolin and discovered it was a French paint brand. Turns out that the Dutch Ripolin factory was situated in the town I live in.
Around 1915 they published this paper Domino game. Unfortunately, I don't have the original box.
