Landscapes by Lele Saveri

Published by Dashwood Books (2015)
120 Pages, 18.5 x 12 cm, Paperback, Edition of 500

Lele Saveri’s photographs of nudes and flora were taken during 2014. Working with the designer Brian Lamotte they experimented over months with a Risograph press producing hundreds of variants of colour and tone. This process in the right hands degrades the images with a textured beauty but tends to be unstable and become expensive for books produced in more than a few dozen pages. Dashwood decided to treat the Risographs like original artwork and have them scanned and printed offset in an edition of 500 copies as part of a series in the form of literary paperbacks.
