Heading to The Printing Arts Fair in North Andover, MA!!!!

I am just getting ready to put my suitcase into the truck and head for the Boston, MA area and The Printing Arts Fair at The Museum of Printing in North Andover, MA this coming Sunday.  Iam traveling with a colleague from The Letterpress Gang, another Nancy, and am thankful for the company on this journey.

Check out the link for the fair on the Museum website. IT IS AN AMAZING EVENT.  I serve as a member of the Board of Directors of this 100% volunteer run facility.

There was also a wonderful article in the Boston Globe about the museum and the fair, which runs Sunday, June 16th, from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

As is my custom, I have completed a letterpress collage monoprint, seen here, for the raffle. It is framed and ready to hang on your wall! It was completed on the Vandercook 01 proof press given to me by my dear friend, John Kristensen of Firefly Press in Boston.

In addition to all the wonderful demonstrations at this year's fair, Steamroller Printing is BACK!!!

A group of artisans have completed individual blocks of the Alphabet, cut in linoleum, that will be inked and arranged together on a piece of plywood. Paper will be put on top, then another piece of plywood, and the steamroller will pass over it to make a print. There will be other large blocks printed as well.

The Museum Shop will be open, selling type and letterpress supplies as well as an incredible selection of books and prints.

Don't miss this incredible day!
