About the Art Night Broadside Series
On Art NIght at The Southern Letterpress, everyone is invited to print a free broadside on the Vandercook printing press. This broadside is designed in advance, handset in metal type and usually features some kind of imagery in addition to the text. Frequent visitors to The Southern’s Art Night will accumulate a complete portfolio of letterpress-printed broadsides. The goal of this project is to increase the public’s access to printing history, creative writing and art ownership
