Koen Taselaar's book Surfing The Slippery Slope is the outcome of his 3-month residency at the CARF in Kolkata, India. "During the residency I explored the city and made drawings reflecting my stay. I worked with various, for me (un)known printing techniques that are being practiced by printers in Kolkata and made a book out of my drawings."

The book consists of 20 duotone block printed pages, 8 line-printed pages and a silkscreened cover.

If you like to see more of the residency please check kuntasrai.tumblr.com for a visual journal of my time in Kolkata. Many thanks to the Mondriaan fund and the CARF for making all of this possible.
