The modern world was born on a printing press. Once essential to communication, the 500-year-old process is now in danger of being lost as its caretakers age. From self-proclaimed basement hoarders to the famed Hatch Show Print, “Pressing On: The Letterpress Film” explores the question: why has letterpress survived?
Join AIGA Nebraska for a screening of the movie followed by a panel discussion with local letterpress printers to hear more about this art form. Panelists participating are:
Bennett Holzworth | Independent Letterpress Printer (Lincoln, NE)
