Letterpress printing is a printing technique which uses impressions of an inked surface to produce multiple copies of a work. Letterpress printing can be done with a specifically designed press with movable type, but can also be produced using wood engravings, photo-etched plates, and many other materials to produce consistent results for multiple pressings.
Content DescriptionReturn to Top
Twelve artist books created for Graphic Design 375 at MSU in fall 2019, taught by Ashley Fuchs. All books were created with letterpress printing. The project, Bozeman to Berlin Artist Book Collaboration, was a partnership with UE University of Applied Sciences Europe, Berlin Campus, teacher Laureen Mahler. The books were to use the theme "motion in narrative," were required to have a coptic binding, and students were able to use any array of materials (metal, wood, polymer plates etc.) to produce the pages. Artist statements were written by the MSU student associated with each item. The statements focus on the collaborative process and how artistic decisions were made. The course syllabus, with project details, has also been included.
