Cut and Paste, Sort of

Printeresting gets more than its fair share of emails touting various new print products looking for exposure. Most of them are pretty humdrum but this one caught my attention. It’s a real move forward (backward?) in terms of rethinking the way we interact with a desktop printer. It seems to take inspiration from an bygone era of actual cut and paste publishing when rearranging things on your desktop didn’t involve a mouse but actual scissors and rubber cement. I like the idea of taking the good things about digital publishing (precision, speed, etc.) and merging them with an actual physical relationship to the thing that being made. Anyway, it’s a far cry from holding a burin but it seems like a welcome shift back to a more tactile approach. I have a feeling this is just the tip of the iceberg.
