        LaNana Creek Press Summer Book and Letterpress Intensive
        July 8�August 5, 2007


        The LaNana Creek Press and the School of Art at Stephen F. Austin State
        University will host a one month intensive retreat that is intended for
        letterpress printers, binders or other book artists who would like to hone
        their skills while working on a major project of their choosing.

        Each participant will design, print, and bind an edition of books, and
        construct a slipcase and drop spine clam-shell box. Instruction will be
        available as needed. Field trips to Austin, Dallas, and Houston's printing
        sites of interest are planned.

        Topics to be covered are: hand & computer typesetting, book design, and
        letterpress printing, edition binding and basic case and box making. Basic
        silkscreen, intaglio and relief print instruction will be provided as
        requested within the context of the chosen project.

        Facilities include a well equipped printmaking facility that includes
        Vandercooks, C&P, lithographic and etching presses, Xante FilmMaker 4,
        platemakers, and exposure units for silkscreen and photopolymer films for
        intaglio.
