Dikko Faust Typographer; letterpress printermaker; founder, Purgatory Pie Press

This course will explore the many image-making possibilities available through letterpress printing. Metal and wood type will be used for text; photo-polymer plates, linoleum and woodcuts, collage prints, collagraphs, and even the letterforms themselves will be incorporated for creating images. Students will learn to create photo-polymer plates from digital files, and print using traditional letterpress equipment. Multiple-color printing, pinpoint registration and several easy book forms will be covered.
