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

This course will concentrate on nontraditional, experimental and painterly uses of letterpress. Printing from collagraphs and linocut plates offers endless possibilities for image-making and color overprinting. We will explore moiré and inter- ference patterns by shifting type set-ups and the use of multiple printings. We will also look at the type experiments of avant-garde movements, such as Dada and futurism, and innovative printers from the 19th and 20th centuries. Sessions will begin with demonstrations and are followed by studio time to work on self-initiated projects. Previous printmaking experience is not required.
