10th Annual Printing Arts Fair featuring Steamroller Printing
Steamroller printing is back!
Steamroller Printing is returning to the 10th Annual Printing Arts Festival, June 16 — Father’s Day. The steamroller will print huge 3×9 feet prints from 27 individual linoleum blocks made by local artists along with other large art.
Dad will love the clang of the working printing presses, Mom will marvel at art prints being made and the kids can get ink on their fingers when they set their name in wood type then print it. Everybody will be amazed as hot molten lead is turned into lines of type and kids (of all ages) can print their own Father’s Day card.
Demonstrations of litho and intaglio printing, stone carving, and letterpress printing are on tap.
Collectors will find rare letterpress accessories while associated vendors will exhibit their specialty wares. A raffle of printing related memorabilia, art and offerings from local business will be held.
The Fair runs from 10 am to 4 pm.
Tables of type
and everything letterpress – quoins, keys, sticks, furniture, sorts, wood cuts, orphan letters (metal and wood), registration pins, ink, and more — all useful, some simply nice to look at and collectible, will be on sale April 13 from 10 to 3 at the Museum of Printing, 800 Massachusetts Ave, North Andover, Mass.
