In spite of wanting to take a break from everything school-related this summer, I still had to sign up for a one-weekend course to meet a credit requirement. So I did. But you know what? It's ameliorated by the fact that it looks like it's going to be the COOLEST CLASS EVER.
Letter Press Fundamentals Workshop
A love for ink on paper and a modicum of manual dexterity are required! This workshop will demonstrate typesetting by hand, on-press page composition and printing multiples on a Vandercook cylinder press. You'll explore the nuances of impression, inking and paper selection as well as improve your typographic sensitivity. We'll also experiment with overprinting colors and printing illustrations. Please bring words and ideas for your project to our first meeting.
