This project outlines the history and contemporary examples of four different hand printing methods: block print, batik, silkscreen, and tie and dye. The project focuses on my interest in the handmade processes and the importance these methods have in distinct cultures. The catalog, iPad app, and dye kit in this project are all meant to highlight the beauty of the handmade mark and the beautiful imperfections produced by them. The project also highlights the cultures in which these printing methods originated and relates the history to the contemporary examples that inspire my own design.
