NOW FEATURING: MOVEABLE TYPE
Take a 1982 Chevy Step Van, add a few thousand pounds of lead, wood, iron, and love, and you get a fully functional letterpress print shop on wheels. Got it? Ok. Now imagine that van motoring it’s way to Central PA. Wonderful right? Well, it’s rolling into FEED on Thursday October 27th. Come on out, step inside the truck and try your hand at making a letterpress print to keep!
Kyle Durrie, proprietor of Power and Light Press by day and master of road trips in her spare time, longed to print and road trip at the same time. She launched a KickStarter campaign, got backed by overwhelming support, and was able to take her project, Moveable Type, on the road. After outfitting the back of the truck with built-in cabinets and workspace, a sign press from the mid 20th century, and an 1873 Golding Official No. 3 tabletop platen press, she’s traveling the country and making a special visit to AIGA Central PA.
