The printed word allows people to communicate effectively at a distance. In this class, we’ll take advantage of letterpress as a medium to produce simple editioned books that are designed to be shared and distributed. Learn how to combine traditional typesetting, relief printing, and experimental inking methods with simple book structures, perfect for making portable editions. This workshop will offer a thorough introduction to studio tools, ink mixing, press operation, typesetting, image-making techniques, and edition printing. It is great for beginners or those who wish to gain additional experience with the presses and refine their skills.

Basic bookmaking techniques will be demonstrated and participants will be encouraged to consider text as image, image as narrative, and how both change when they are folded and bound in surprising combinations. Participants will leave with a portfolio of small editions produced throughout the week and ideas for further development.
