Self Contained Outdoor Printing Equipment - S.C.O.P.E.
This is a backpack printing press. The Self Contained Outdoor Printing Equipment, or S.C.O.P.E. was designed and made by Craft & Concept. This project was started from the view that we needed to have a functional printing press which fits in an over head bin compartment. Perfect for lino blocks woodcuts, and type, the S.C.O.P.E. provides one of the simplest ways to demonstrate the essentials of printing. The S.C.O.P.E. houses the tools and materials needed, and you can wear it! This is the most simple printing press we have ever made. It is basically a proofing press made of aluminum, and the most basic tools of a printing operation, combined into a custom made backpack. We believe in an art that is able to serve a function and communicate a concept at the same time. This project is something we hope reflects our goal of reminding people that the act of printing is what first made information more accessible to the masses.
