2 day workshop
A broadside is a finely designed, typographically-driven, beautifully letterpress printed artwork, honoring a well-loved poem or quote. In this workshop, you will design and letterpress print your own broadside, using handset type and the Vandercook printing press. We will discuss different papers for printing, and investigate typographic and graphic design for letterpress printing. Get some practice in typesetting, and advance your letterpress printing skills! Each participant will create their own broadside, in an edition of 20 to 25. All supplies included in the cost of the workshop
$175, limited to 4 participants.
