Comparisons of printed reproductions of the proud black and red printed cover of the book 'Die Kunstismen' (1925), made by Russian artist and designer El Lissitzky. Published between 1967 and 2017, these images treat the material characteristics of the original book's colour in different ways, appealing to contradictory notions of fidelity. Offset printed, text in English and French, with a fold-out poster. Published by Empire and available from Revue Faire, www.revue-faire.eu.
