Join us for a letterpress printing demo with the friendly members of the Iowa City Press Co-op, the only community print-shop in town! During this demo, we will be hand-printing bookmarks for you to take home using a tabletop letterpress printing press called Kelsey. Members of the ICPC will be here to share the various offerings at ICPC including community shop access, membership, and the newly launched upcoming summer workshops in printmaking and book arts! Drop by and say hi! Drop-ins welcome! Free, for all ages.
Letterpress printing is a kind of relief printing that traditionally uses individual pieces of metal or wood type to print onto paper using a specialized printing press.
