Bloom Publishing are one of our favourite independent publishers in Australia, they make great products that are always well curated, considered and presented. One of their first releases was 35ppm a prefect bound book to go along with an exhibition of the same name. Details from them on the title below, it is still available if you wish to pick it up!
In January 2015, Bloom Publishing curated their first submission-based exhibition, 35ppm, a print on demand experiment showcasing photographic work from around the globe, produced on site by their very own mono laser printer.
The exhibition took place at Tinning Street over 4 days, and featured a single A3 print by 30 artists. Each work sold, was printed on-the-spot via their HP Laserjet.
This publication was created during the open days of the show and documents the featured works, as well as the printing and installation processes - with intro by Sean Irving.
