FORM


The design for the Octopus was done in the stencil painting method of early Russian Constructivist designers, esp. Mayakovsky, 1910, who published hand stencilled posters called Rosta (=windows).


The 'text-block' is screen printed on a single sheet, then sliced and folded into individual pages. The centre page spread folds out to double size.


The illustrations were all prepared in Multichannel mode.
