Letterpress Consults, Lectures, Visits

It’s been a busy Spring & Summer.  Mindy Belloff was invited to Rich Turnbull’s History of the Book class at FIT to talk about her fine artist’s books.

Priscilla came into NYC from Brazil for a private consult, as did Macarena and her daughter from Argentina.  Both were wonderful meetings and tutorials on the clamshell press, as the unique craft of letterpress printing spreads to Latin America.
