This past July, I taught a three evening workshop at Pope Press titled “The Photographic Broadside.” The description read as follows:
In this three evening, nine hour workshop, students will have the opportunity to combine digital photography with traditional typesetting and letterpress techniques. Students will create original writings responding to their photographic images. These photographs will be digitally printed on fine art rag paper. Participants will then hand set type and print writings on images, creating unique photo-based letterpress broadsides. Each
participant will leave with an edition of four photographic letterpress broadside prints!
Digital images were printed on Moab by Legion Paper with my Epson 2400. Image size of prints were 11″ x 17.” Below are some of the gorgeous prints we made!
