Street Printing Festival
The Festival was great fun! See the 3-ton roller printing in action on Youtube. The prints have rich blacks and deep debossing and embossing from so much pressure on the linoleum blocks. See the prints on display at Sebastopol Library through July.
A day-long celebration of printmaking and book arts at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts. Saturday, June 28, 2014, 11 am to 5 pm. SCA go
