Noirs

Les Schroumpfs Noirs is the first book of the acclaimed series of the Smurfs. Its storyline goes as following: Smurfs get bitten by an infected flying bug only to be transformed into mindless, evil and violent attackers. Their blue colour changes ‘accordingly’ to black. My rip-off, Noirs, is a fac-simile: same cover, same stories, same number of pages, same format, and as close to the original in the quality of paper, its weight and so on. There is one, single difference: the four offset plates (magenta, yellow, cyan and black) that form the basis of offset printing have been replaced by four plates of cyan. Apart from reactivating an old consensus and problematizing the innocuously naturalization of the ideological use of colour, Noirs sheds light on the industrial fabrication of books where offset printing, a supposedly transparent and mechanic process, that once hi-jacked (here on colour separation), can reveal to be an instrument of political action.
