The basics of letterpress printing will be covered, giving emphasis to traditional and experimental methods for using handset metal and wooden type. Additional print options will be presented. The course will emphasize both the technical and aesthetic aspects of letterpress printing. This will include setting type and printing using the letterpress. Emphasis will be given to the text & image page as a two-dimensional art form. As a final project students will each contribute a print component to a limited edition compilation. Students must plan to devote time outside of class and attend both the class on Wednesday from 1-4:50 and the evening lab on Wednesday from 6-8 PM.
