Lubok 11 was produced in co-operation with Lubok Verlag from Leipzig, Germany. The editions of Lubok are significant in the way that they are almost all produced in linocut. Every edition therefor scents an overwhelming aroma of printing ink and radiates intense love for craft.
In 2012 PrintRoom made an exhibition of all Lubok’s editions so far. On the occasion it was decided to make this joint publication. Lubok 11 contains over 90 linocuts of 12 international artists:
Damien Deroubaix, Marcel van Eeden, Sebastian Gögel, Irene Hanenbergh, Thomas Moecker, Olivia Plender, Christoph Ruckhäberle, Marcel Ruijters, Ewoud van Rijn, Jasper Sebastian Stürup, Koen Taselaar, James Whitman.

The Archaic Revival Review
PrintRoom publication # 11
Co-edited with Dani Tull
The Archaic Revival Review is Printroom’s publication #11. Contributions of over 20 Californian artists and two texts respond to the singular psychedelic ideas of Terence McKenna, the etnobotanist who, together with his brother Dennis, discovered the cultivation of the Psilocybin mushrooms, known in Holland as ‘Paddos’. In many publications and lectures McKenna philosophied on the social cultural implications of his discovery and thus became an inspiration for the 1980’s rave culture. The title refers to his 1992 book: The Archaic Revival: Speculations on Psychedelic Mushrooms, the Amazon, Virtual Reality, UFOs, Evolution, Shamanism, the Rebirth of the Goddess, and the End of History. In this book McKenna speculates on the idea that in prehistoric time human consciousness was accelerated by the use of mindexpanding mushrooms. Today McKenna is being rediscovered by a new generation of artists with a spiritual bend.
The Archaic Revival Review is produced in 2 colours on PrintRoom's own Risograph (colour-stencil) printers, which produce a type of printing that holds the middle between silkscreen- and copyprints.
