This course will focus on the history of broadsides, or finely printed informative posters, and the study of typesetting and letterpress within a contemporary fine art print context. Students will learn how to hand set and handle 50 - 100 year-old type, how to properly print and proof blocks of text using Vandercook and Platen Presses, and how to use color theory principles in their work. In addition, students will learn basic image-making techniques including relief and screen-printing in order to integrate text and image together.
