Join us for an exclusive panel of some of the best and brightest women working in letterpress and paper design today! Jessica White (of Heroes & Criminals Press) and Kseniya Thomas (founder of Thomas-Printers) lead a discussion based on their new book, Ladies of Letterpress: A Gallery of Prints, which catalogs beautiful work from around the United States and includes 80 gorgeous poster inserts. Also appearing will be letterpress artists Gina Houseman (of Papersheep) and Sarah Nicholls.
About the book:
Who can resist the tactile charm of letterpress? Not many, judging by its ever-rising popularity among artists and designers working with old-school printing methods. Ladies of Letterpress: A Gallery of Prints features the best work of the members of Ladies of Letterpress, an international organization that champions the work of women printers. Valuable as a handy resource, it includes a wide range of pieces, from greeting cards to broadsides and posters, printed in a variety of type and illustration styles. Each piece is accompanied by details of paper, inks, and press used in its printing, and a profile of its printer. Whether you’re drawn to elegant greeting cards, humorous note cards, or calendars and posters, you’re sure to find inspiration in this volume. And when you do, there are eighty detachable pages just begging to be pinned up.
Buy a copy of Ladies of Letterpress or a $15 Strand gift card in order to attend this event.
