The Making of Lee Friedlander’s America By Car

Friedlanderproof Book publisher D.A.P. offers a behind-the-scenes look at the process of printing Lee Friedlander’s latest book, America By Car, through images taken by Director of Title Acquisitions Todd Bradway.

Bradway’s photos show the 50-foot long Heidelberg Speedmaster press at Meridian Printing in East Greenwich, Rhode Island, the prepped printing plates, buckets of metallic inks, and the foil stamp used on the jacket of the limited edition.

There are also a few shots of Friedlander himself documenting his involvement in the proofing process. Friedlander analyzed each completed print after it was inspected by Meridian Printing technicians.

The complete set of photos can be found here.
