The Book Arts League was one of 20 letterpress printshops from all around the world invited to participate in fundraising efforts to help the Englewood Depot. Local letterpress legend, Tom Parson, founded the museum and is in the process of starting a very cool project…
“The Englewood Depot: a living museum of letterpress printing, typography, design, poetry and art – a working vintage letterpress printshop, with space for exhibits, demonstrations, workshops, events and meetings, as well as typographic research and printing projects – to be a resource available to the community.” –letterpressdepot.com
Book Arts League volunteers, Julia Seko and Vivian Jean, teamed up to create an 11″ x 15″ broadside. The print involved concept & design, hand carving a lino block and setting metal and wood type as well as metal ornaments. This covered a wide variety of letterpress elements and the print hints at the classic wanted posters as well as pays tribute to the history of the former train depot-turned letterpress museum.Read More »
