RoughBooks is a caleidoscopic project, based in Lisbon (Portugal), that aims to explore the rough and often overlooked uniqueness of the self-publishing world. We’re mainly an independent creative studio focused on Risograph printing, facilitating the production of small scale publications, artist books, posters, flyers, and any other graphic objects. In parallel we also have our own publishing house where we regularly publish zines, books, and other limited edition works by various artists and illustrators that we feel are rough enough.
Fidèle is initially a small press publishing picture books and comics. Almost every book is printed on our double drum machines, and since 2016 we beggan to offer our services as printers. Now it's a 50-50 activity and the studio is growing with new materials at the "Grands Voisins", a former hospital turned into a famous alternative economy and social developpement place.
Created out of Dylan Devine and YEAHYELHSA's (Ashley Olinger) desire to experiment with the Risograph printing process, Hell Yeah Design is Pittsburgh Pennsylvania's first [to our knowledge] Risograph print studio. The studio's objective is to aide the art and design community in creating unique printed materials and offering a platform for the sale of work by themselves and their collaborators.
