New course offering at Archetype Press
This fall, through Art Center at Night, I will be offering a course
titled Digital Letterpress. This will be held at Archetype Press from
its new location at Art Center's new South Campus at 950 S. Raymond
Avenue in Pasadena. This will be a fourteen week class held on
Thursday nights from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
Digital Letterpress examines letterpress printing and typographc
practices with the photopolymer plate process. I previously taught
this course at Otis College of Art and Design,
I will also be offering my ongoing course Finer Points in Letterpress
Typography on Tuesday nights from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
Archetype Press houses Los Angeles typographer Vernon Simpson's
considerable collection of metal type. Eight Vandercooks are available
for student use.
Enrollment is limited to ten students per class.
