Trig Point Drawing - Riso Print

£11.00

Out of stock

Our Triangulation Pillar design print features a technical cross-section of a trig point. Perfect for the outdoor lover or hiking fanatic.

A familiar sight on hilltops across the UK, trig points (or 'triangulation stations') are beloved by outdoor lovers. There were once 6,500+ trig pillars in the UK, built by the Ordinance Survey. The pillar was devised by Brig Martin Hotine in the 1930s to provide a base for the theodolites used by the surveyors. When all the trig points were in place, it was possible in clear weather to see at least two other trig points from any one trig point. Although the stations are no longer required for surveying purposes, hikers love them as navigation aids and, of course, for marking the achievement of reaching the summit.

This design is printed using a Risograph, a stencil and ink process similar to screen printing. Risography gives an added texture and charm - and, here, adds to the vintage blueprint feel. 

  • One colour risograph, printed on premium grade green 170gsm paper.

The Risograph was invented in Japan in the 1980s. The Riso prints one ink color at a time using a stencil applied to a rotating drum. By feeding pages through two, three or four times and changing the drum stencil, you can produce gorgeous multi-layered artwork. 

The use of spot ink colours rather than usual CMYK print toner of commercial printing adds an extra dimension and texture to the work. Each Riso print will have a unique one-of-a-kind charm and quality that we just adore.
