With your help, last summer I was able to watch the best printers on the planet in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul). Extra Virgin Press was also able to secure a bit more wood type from the print rich Midwest. The goal is to return to Mpls again summer 2019 for the MCBA Book Arts Biennial and more time in the studios of master printers.
To see Gaylord Schanilec’s collaborative project, My Mighty Journey, a book about the Mississippi River with the Minnesota Historical Society, writer John Loy, coordinated and documented by Paul Nylander on Tumblr, go to:
This blog is a gift of collaborative knowledge across many aspects of printing with the letterpress.
Pass it along to other print people who support the future of letterpress in South Florida.
Our GiveMiami goal this year is $4,000, for travel, type, and training with master printers in Summer 2019.
