(via CLMNZ: HKS Colourmatch 23) Colourmatch is a periodical published by HKS, the offset printing colour system, to publicise a small selection of the 3000 or so HKS colours. Each issue presents a different topic in a specific typographic style. Most of the fonts are produced by smaller type foundries and are shown to their full advantage when printed in spot colours. Since launching Colourmatch, HKS no longer uses any product advertising printed in conventional process colours. Its Colourmatch periodical is a collectable, inspiring medium. Every issue is painstakingly printed in five spot colours and can be subscribed to free of charge at www.hks-farben.de.

Printable Robots from MIT: “a new technology that could make it possible for the average person to design, customize and print a specialized robot in a matter of hours.”
"You imaged the words on this piece of paper. You put the piece of paper down on the board. You took a photograph of the piece of paper, You made a negative. You transmitted it. You reimaged it. You made a plate… Each time you did that, it kind of bled a little. Dow Text was meant to bleed through all of those reimagings and then, when you actually printed it, it looked fine.” Until, that is, the printing process simplified. When there were fewer steps, Dow Text bled less, and suddenly it looked “kind of thin and washed out.” ("What Makes The Wall Street Journal Look Like The Wall Street Journal” The Atlantic)
