Letter by Letter: Letterpress Printing & Handwritten Text
Instructor: Alisa Golden, Senior Adjunct Professor
Oakland / PRINT–103 / 23 sessions
July 5-August 11, Mon./Tues./Wed./Thurs., 2-6 p.m.
In this hands-on, tactile approach to printing, handwriting, and lettering, we create cards, broadsides, and book forms, while investigating letterforms and the relationship of form to content.
Beginning with pencils and pen and ink, we experiment with informal alphabets that are appropriate for both personal art and public projects. Setting up digital files for photopolymer plates, using handwritten text, and printing from handset metal and wood types on cloth and found papers all provide new strategies and methods for design and expression. Through a series of assignments, we explore letterpress printing techniques and their combinations, hierarchies, materials, and presentation.
Online sources and in-class examples and discussions provide background and context for calligraphy and printing in various cultures around the world.
