Cake Makes Paper

Cake, the band not the food, work with SF Center for the Book to create blockprint handmade lyric books for their new release - using paper made from their shirts.  Great feature on it here showing the entire process.

The limited edition of 1,000 handmade packets was produced in Berkeley, California in true DIY fashion by project coordinator Pam DuLuco and her team. Using natural and recycled components and throwback printing methods, they carved printmaker Rigel Stuhmiller’s bold illustrations into linoleum.

Lead and wood type were used to hand-press the words onto paper crafted from the Cake wardrobe discards and jute coffee sacks. Binding thread was hand-spun and coated in beeswax drawn from DuLuco’s personal beehive.
