Fine Arts Exploration
Using movable type, linoleum blocks, pressure print matrices, collagraphs, photoengraving, and photopolymer plates, students design and print several editions on hand-operated letterpresses. Through discussion and critique, students learn basic elements of design and typography with the option of integrating other printing processes into letterpress work. Typically, students participate in a class print exchange. The class also views letterpress work from the Marriott Library’s Rare Books Collection.
