As this publication was designed and went to print before the exhibition was mounted, it wasn’t possible to include images of the exhibition itself. Instead, this catalogue contains images (more of which can be seen in the exhibition) that were taken whilst materials for the exhibition were being collected. They were taken on the many visits to print and production companies, locations that on a daily basis churn out hundreds of thousands of printed materials. They are images of places to which the general public don’t normally have access. Places that are full of fascination because of the spectacular machinery that they house and of the enormous quantities of paper, card and ink and other materials that they consume. As such they are an integral component of the ‘graphic forest’, showing part of the hidden industry that lies behind graphic production.
