Event Details

Monday, October 24, 2011 from 5:45 PM to 8:00 PM (ET)

Don’t miss this unique talk and demonstration at the TDC! At 6 pm
sharp, Kyle Durrie (a letterpress printer from Portland, Oregon and
the proprietor of Power and Light Press) will talk about her on-going
letterpressing cross-country tour in her 1982 Chevy step van, which
she converted into a fully functional letterpress print shop. At 6:45,
Ms. Durrie will take the attendees (limited to 30) to her truck parked
in the parking lot of R/GA, 350 West 39 Street. Three groups of ten
(10) will see the 20-minute demonstration. Sign up early to save your
spot!

Kyle has outfitted the back of her truck with built-in cabinets and
workspace, a sign press from the mid 20th century, an 1873 Golding
Official No. 3 tabletop platen press, and a few thousand pounds of
lead, wood, iron, and love. She is spending the next nine or so months
driving all over North America, teaching workshops, doing demos, and
generally spreading the good word about printing the old fashioned
way.

***Please note this talk starts at 6pm sharp.
