MD Workshop

Micropress publishing collection


The crossing of the abstraction of the mental processes and the physical nature of the matter, between the virtual dimension of time - suspended between the past, the present and the future - and tangible signs of humanity, such as memories, inspired the Micropress publishing collection project in which Micropress members of the MD Lab wish to propose themselves as makers ("new artisans" of knowledge) by combining ideas, designs, passion for experimentation, and openness to self-manufacturing opportunities offered by new digital technologies.
Micropress identifies, in the field of printed products, a family of small "nomad" communication tools - journals, notebooks, small books - designed to organise and give meaning to time, to record meetings, to gather ideas and the visions of the individuals, to draft the profiles or short stories of those involved, time after time, in the research and cooperation activities of MD Lab, with public entities and private supporters.
These tools can be regarded as publishing products with distinctive characteristics, distinguishable for their hybridization between functional value of use and narration, characterised by an essential graphic design, flexible to the dissemination and valorisation of the information content, or - in special cases - in the narratives linked to institutions, brands, initiatives, and cultural projects.
