Artisanal Fair Italia :: Letterpress Demonstration

This is a special time of year as I get to spend it with the guys at the printing museum collaborating on the organization of the Artigianato (artisanal fair) 10-16 August. There will be two letterpress printing posts outside in our lovely Piazza Maggiore in the historic part of Mondovì. At one post Pirouette Press and Claudio Mandella of 9PT will pay homage to pop artist Andy Warhol by printing up some letterpress postcards with some infamous quotes by yours truly. I was moved by Warhol because of his willingness to mix it up and experiment with various mediums, including film, and techniques like printing.

These are the results of our 2 day homage to Andy Warhol -- great fun!
