Goings on in The Book Arts Workshop!!

There have been a lot of things going on recently in the Book Arts Workshop.

Artist Angela Lorenz visited the Book Arts
Workshop and presented her work to Esme
Thompson’s Collage class.

Kate Emlen’s Drawing 1 Class came in to combine some
letterpress printing with their drawings.

In the fall, we went on an automnal letterpress excursion to two fabulous 
shops in Vermont-Heather Hale’s and Kelly McMahon’s. 
Heather showed us how her Heidelberg press works.

This student is pretty happy with
the poster she just made.
She was even happier with
 this version!

Lots of red in this holiday card.
Alex Halasz’s History of the Book
 class has been working in the studios
 producing a group book with
the theme of word play.

We had a holiday card-printing extravaganza
that resulted in more happy printers!

Here is one of the student’s type
set for the Word Play book. Can you see
the shape her type forms?
