Today is GiveMiami Day
Extra Virgin Press has spent seven summers learning from the letterpress community in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. Letterpress printing in Minnesota is alive and well, growing a new generation of printers in the Midwest. We will bring that knowledge back to Miami. Your donations to Extra Virgin Press through GiveMiami will offer us another chance to visit this vital printing community, to purchase type and specialized tools, and bring it back to South Florida.
Take a look at MCBA Book Arts Biennial 2017
Some of the magic, Midwest glue that holds the printing community together…
The Minnesota Center for Book Arts hosted Amos Kennedy and one of his many powerful community oriented prints in July 2017. He filled the MCBA with 6500 prints.
Below, John Coy and Gaylord Schanilec, and some really cool glue that went into printing “My Mighty Journey.”
Extra Virgin Press is proud to be supported by our local community, students, writers and artists.
