Printing Poetry 2011

Printing Poetry ~ a  day-long workshop at Iota Press for those interested in:

The graphic potency of hand-printed words & the unique perceptions that come while sculpting a poem one letter at a time.

This was a class for people who wanted to  learn how to treat their poems
as sculptures on the page by setting them in metal type and
printing a chapbook collaboratively on letterpress equipment.

Required: short poems, quick  fingers, and an interest in the old way of having one’s words make a deep impression.

Each person brought a short poem & took home copies of the booklet.

When  Saturday, July 9, 2011, 9 am to 5 pm, with a break for lunch.

Where  Iota Press print shop, 925-c Gravenstein Hwy. S., Sebastopol CA 95472 go
