Black and white Xerox posters were a major part of the 1970s counterculture aesthetic. Artist and graphic designer Marlene Weisman guest hosts a special Club 57 takeover edition of IN THE STUDIO and demonstrates how to transfer the ink from Xerox prints to a new sheet of paper to create collages, posters, and other works of art using the same pre-Photoshop technique that she used in the 1970s and ’80s.
