Lorenz Boegli – Printer of Light, Master of Serigraphy / Lorenz Boegli – Imprimeur de la lumière, maître de la sérigraphie

Lorenz Boegli is the master of screen printing and he guards the secrets surrounding his recipes and processes like the tinkerers and inventors of old. By utilizing pearlescent pigments in his innovative RGB printing technique his works come to possess visual and dimensional qualities unattainable by other printing processes. Boegli’s craft is used by the crème de la crème of fashion, luxury and jewelry brands for their packaging and printed matter. Each commission leads him to develop his printing effects and techniques further; he astounds with emotional results that are only remotely reminiscent of traditional screen printing. 

Boegli’s products achieve their maximum effect in this publication in combination and juxtaposition with offset printing in equally high quality. Across eight exquisite types of papers, the employed printing effects bring to life the various motifs from art, photography, fashion and jewelry, offering an incomparable visual and sensual spectacle.

Text contributions in letterpress enhance the haptic sensation of the book. Experts from various disciplines shed light on the metaphor of alchemy in relation to Boegli’s mastery and its significance for artistic and commercial use as well as for the advancement of the printing industry.

The publication is produced in close cooperation between Lorenz Boegli, the quality printing house Grafiche Antiga – Tipoteca in Treviso and the traditional Italian paper manufacturer Fedrigoni.
