TO THE EXTEND OF / \ | & - by Sigrid Calon is the result of a fascination for the embroidery grid. The possible stitches on a 3x3 dot grid are translated into lines and colour fields in the computer and have led to new patterns and possibilities. Working with the RISO printer, a descendant of the old stencil machine, Calon has pushed past the usual CMYK scheme and found countless more options for colour, layering and intensity. With her systematical approach, Calon has managed to pinpoint her research into a book that is both comprehensive and indicative of more. You may lose track of time leafing through the patterns, but it is also a handy example of what can be done with a grid and four colours.

Printed, designed and published by Sigrid Calon, Edition of 420. RISO-printed, 160 x 210 x 32 mm, Smyth sewn and glued with a hardcover attached to the back page and a silkscreened dust jacket.
