A Contemporary Illumination

Get a sneak peak of the newest edition in progress from Intima Press at the
3rd Annual MANHATTAN FINE PRESS BOOK FAIR this
Saturday,
April 9, 2016, from 10am to 6pm
869 Lexington Avenue (Church of St. Vincent Ferrer)
at East 66th Street (down the block from the Armory show)
over 40 fine presses will be exhibiting their books

I have been working on “A Golden Thread” featuring text from the classic myth, “The Minotaur,” written by Nathaniel Hawthorne in 1853.  It includes a contemporary twist on the medieval manuscript, with Labyrinthine Quotes of Carl Jung, musings on Lorem Ipsum, and a wink to the weavings of Arachne.  The typography shifts from elegant to explosive, decorative borders are hand drawn and hand painted, with highlighted marginalia, and a few edgy intaglio prints.  The book is in its early stages, but you may get a glimpse into the creative process at the Fine Press Fair this Saturday, with fifty pages to view.

Book Fair, Studio Visit, & DIY Intro Letterpress!

The PS1 MOMA Book Fair was a lot of fun and as usual, boasted a very hip crowd!  The Studio on the SQ artists exhibited a wonderful variety of artist’s books, broadsides, and stationery.

We had a nice visit from Martin, a typesetter and printer from Amsterdam.  Martin & Mindy compared Studio equipment, and talked about the differences between American & European measures and aesthetics!


In the Introduction to Letterpress workshop last week, our students, all new to printing and typesetting, created these great hand made note cards, both with ink and blind emboss with Mindy Belloff’s guidance.
