Center for Book Arts

Spent the weekend taking an Introduction to Letterpress Printing class at the Center for Book Arts in Manhattan. Founded in 1974, CBA is the first organization of its kind dedicated to "contemporary interpretations of the book as an art object, while preserving traditional practices of the art of the book". Learned the (very) basics of typesetting, ink mixing, and letterpress printing and printed out a few things on the Vandercook Proof Press shown above. Was great fun and a wonderful learning experience (thx, Sarah).
