One of my favorite things about being a letterpress printer has been meeting other printers, young and old. Over the years they’ve been one of the best resources for learning new tips and tricks, acquiring new equipment, and hearing tales of printing lore. The Midwest and Great Northern Printers’ Fair was the first printing events I ever went to –before I even had any printing equipment.
This year they are partnering with the Ladies of Letterpress and hosting Type on the Cob III at Printers’ Hall on the Thresher’s Grounds in Mount Pleasant, Iowa. There will be workshops, lectures, and printer camaraderie in abundance. I’ll be heading down to Mount Pleasant this September and I’d encourage anyone interested in learning more about the world of letterpress to join the fun. Check out more details here.
