In the midst of the digital age, pause to admire the tactile beauty of the printed page. Join us for an illustrated talk on printing and hands-on demonstration of typesetting on a classic Adana letterpress machine.

Hear artist and printmaker Vicki Reynolds explain her creative process, then watch as a Francesca Sasnaitis’ poem is hand-set using letterpress technology – an intricate process where text is set letter by letter and line by line. Working with artists Marian Crawford, Greg Harrison, Francesca Sasnaitis and Trent Walter, the hand-printed pages will be collated into an artist book, combining poetry and the visual arts in a unique art form.

Presented in partnership with the Print Council of Australia.
