ART 338 @ Larkspur Press

The Intermediate Digital Imaging class is working on a project in relation to Prof. Bolden's poetry class. The assignment is for the art students to partner with poets and create broadsides to illustrate their poems. As an introduction to traditional letter press broadsides and printing, we traveled to Larkspur Press in Monterey, KY to visit Gray Zeits. He was quite gracious and allowed us to tour the press and explain the letter press process as well as show us examples of the work they do.

To find out more about Larkspur and see examples, you can visit their site HERE.

On a side note, here's a favorite video on letterpress that we watch in ART 234...
