Almost there...

Two more sections have been printed:
- SCRMN his colorful art
- Experimental Jetset their contribution.

And I am still trying to get the right result for Lona her photography.

In the meantime I released two tapes on my label Zeitgeists:

So Far, So Good, So What...

- French's part is folded

- Rainbath's part is completely printed and folded

- My own small contribution is finished

- Max his booklet needs another round of layout since I got more content! :-) I have ordered the perfect paper as well. Will be printed upcoming week

- Going to make test silkscreen prints for all the covers upcoming week

- Ordered some samples to keep all the sections together. Some matt-black re-sealable plastic bags. Going to be silkscreen printed or another solution
to tell the world what's actually inside 

- If the samples aren't good enough I thought about another great solution, I will keep you updated.

Another nice gadget..

I am very busy trying to print the photography part of Zeitgeists. This will be a challenge because up till now I am not satisfied with the result. So hopefully it will be better this upcoming week.

As well as searching for black rubber-bands. Had contact with Alliance Rubber Bands but they never replied about a sample offer... So if any of the followers can help me out, please contact me. ---> j o h n j a n s e n 1  g m a i l

Finished section

- Finished French's section

- Found the perfect paper for Lona her section. Nice cream-color, uncoated rough paper which totally fits the/ her theme

- Next: Rainbath's section is almost done printing and Lona her section will be printed after that.

- Found the perfect solution of keeping all the sections together, in other words: to make it an actual magazine.


Blind Press

I am very happy to show something really beautiful:

This will be pressed in every cover.

Finished section

- Finished Demian Johnston's section on the special paper.. very happy with the result.

- Bought carton to test the combinations of different covers. Color/ feeling/ weight/ design..

- Got Experimental Jetset their contribution, very happy with the result!

- Next week: Rainbath and French their sections will be printed.


Finished 2 sections.

At this moment 2 sections are printed.
- Matt Adis his section is printed and folded
- Justin Bartlett his section is printed.

Also received new paper samples.. very happy with the weight (60g) and structure of this paper. This paper is going to be used for the inlay of Max and Joshua their writings.

More news soon.

Sections folded and session on their way..

The finished sections are folded. Every section needs to have a cover, which I still have to think about.

French's section will be printed next week.

Demian Johnston his section will be printed somewhere else because of his painted works, the grayscale will be lost if I use mimeography. (or I have to use a raster..)

Test #1

The dummy for Max G. Morton his contribution to Zeitgeists #1

Test #3

Found the perfect paper for one of the contributing artists his work.
This paper has a rough and smooth side.

    Project Zeitgeists

    ZEITGEISTS – because for me, an artist’s work is, in a way, a ‘sign of the times’. The time we are living in probably influences his/her drawings/pictures/writings as well. The fact that an artist will leave traces in time also gave me the inspiration for this title.


    1. every artist gets a separately binded section. I will use a different paper size, way of reproduction and (silkscreen printed) cover for every artist to ensure this suits the artist’s unique style.
    2. the sections will be held together by an overall cover which will be identical for each upcoming issue to create recognition.
