We printed Graham McDougal's trippy Untitled [Hotzesstrasse 23] tabloid newspaper over two years ago and it has remained a solid office favourite. We came across it again on Instagram recently (on display at the Baltimore Publications Fair) and figured it was high time we shared this fantastic paper on the blog. We knew nothing about the hypnotic publication, so we asked Graham to tell us about his work:

"Untitled [Hotzesstrasse 23] references the street address of a defunct company that manufactured clichés for the printing industry. This publication is based on a series of advertisements published in Graphis magazine between 1969 and 1977. It presents a series of distortions applied to the Graphis pages and documents a series of paintings based on these redacted forms."

"Untitled [Hotzesstrasse 23] is printed on tabloid web-press newsprint and uses single process colors, black and full (cmyk) color to document a range of production; from scanner drags to studio installation views. The edition includes variable, screen-printed additions on the inside cover pages."

Graham shares a lovely studio (pictured below) with Elizabeth Corkery, who runs Print Club Ltd. Elizabeth is a printmaker who produces beautiful, limited-edition silkscreen prints and aims to establish a community print shop in Boston. (If you're in the area, sign up for updates.)

Untitled [Hotzesstrasse 23] will soon be for sale through in-the-works Print Club Book Club, but in the meantime you can buy a copy at Printed Matter (or, if you're an artist or maker yourself, perhaps you can wrangle a print swap).
