Rutgers Practicum × Internet Archive
14 students in Design Practicum and Internet Archive have collaborated to create a limited edition series of risograph posters. Each person in the course Design Practicum gathered unique collections on the Internet Archive and then adapted their findings into an 11×17 graphic. These were printed on a risograph by the Brooklyn-based studio TXT Books. The first 50 people to sign up on the Internet Archive site received a packet of these tabloid-sized posters.
You can see all prints and descriptions on the Internet Archive’s website by:
