‘Letterpress: something to say’ conference at the St Bride Library.

On Friday 9th November 2012, the  St Bride Library will hold its’ third letterpress conference. The previous two conferences have been sell-outs and speakers include Anthony Burrill, Catherine Dixon, Ian Gabb (RCA), Thomas Gravemaker, Dylan Kendle (Tomato), Peter Nencini, and L’automatica (Barcelona) with further contributions anticipated from Prensa Libertad (Buenos Aires) and Vista Sans Wood Type Project.

“A one-day conference exploring letterpress as a means for delivering real content, be that a set of sharply thought-through design intentions; a re-imagining of the possibilities of the inky process itself; an analogue springboard to new digital visuals and environments; or a reconnection with the power of a simple press to communicate ideas.

To step beyond the production of work to be merely admired and consumed, and to reclaim letterpress as a viable means of distributing a message; to tell stories; to galvanize our communities; to allow practice to resonate beyond the frames of our living room walls.”
