Tabletop Letterpress Printing: An Introduction and Demonstration
Join representatives from the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU (JSMA) and WSU’s Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections (MASC) for an introduction to MASC’s recently acquired tabletop letterpress. Staff will be on-hand to discuss the history of letterpress printing, provide background on our Kelsey Victor 8 x 10 platen press, and assist attendees in practicing laying type and printing sample formes (the letterpress term for lines of type that are ready to be printed). All are welcome to attend, and we look forward to seeing you there!
LOCATION: The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU is located in the Crimson Cube (on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium and the CUB) on the WSU Pullman campus. For more information please visit museum.wsu.edu/about.
