This has been a very unique project in which the creative, editorial and production part has had to work very well coordinated from the beginning. This book-object linked a friendship between the authors, with a common thread, the colour blue, through the different landscapes that the photographer Thomas Dhellemmes had captured in a lot of places through his travels around the world and the old friendship with the writer Tahar Ben Jelloun who writes a kind of poetic evocation under each image....

In the introduction to the book, published by Verlag Gerd Hatje, Sttutgart and Éditions Cercle d'Art, Paris in 1962, Wilhem Boeck tells us why the great artist started to make a book with this printing technique: Picasso had only very recently become an adept of cut-linoleum printing. It was a new activity, and doubtless owed to the artist's desire to give colour pride of place withinh printed creations when graphic arts had, until then, consigned it to a subordinate role - even in litography. Taking up the gouge was less, for Picasso, about exploring a new realm of objects and forms, than exposing the forms he had mastered to the rigours of as-yet untested technical possibilities. As he did every time he embarked on a new task, be it sculpture, lithography, ceramics or aquatints, the result obtained can be compared to nothing but previous creations by Picasso himself....

“Multichromy or simulating RGB printing”. On March 21, at the invitation of ATEP France, we offered a conference on printing using multichromy-RGB printing in Paris. The conference hall was filled to the brim; those present, who were all professionals and management from the French editorial and publicity sector, showed great interest and provided constant feedback. The conference addressed how multichrome printing allows us to go beyond the standardized spectrum of reproduction in CMYK. We also offered a detailed explanation of the technical process for colorimetry that has helped us to become one of the first to promote its use in the EU....

Book: PICASSO, Toros y Toreros

With this project we took up a technological challenge. Our partners on our path to success were the Les Caméléons and Nexe-Agpograf photo-engraving and printing companies. When Bernard Champeau, project manager at Éditons du Cercle d’Art, showed us the project, we could never have imagined that the results would satisfy everyone so quickly. Our remit was to succeed in creating a faithful reproduction of Pablo Picasso's work "Toros”, based solely on a book printed in the 1960s and nothing else. What is more, after analysing this book, we found that some pages were Pantone quadrichrome + various, some were Pantone bichrome + background and others were Pantone trichrome. They were all in an unstable condition to print from one page to another and with no standardisation....
