Me and my fellow 7 Ton Letterpress Collective members took at trip from Asheville to Knoxville yesterday to lend eight hands to our friends at Yee-Haw Industries. The shop, a mainstay of southern letterpress amazingness, is scheduled to close its doors at the end of the month. Twas a bittersweet field trip. We’ll miss you Yee-Haw!

Whoa. It’s been a wild few months… collaborations, commissions and an impending union… I haven’t had a second to share! So… in the spirit of the season, here are a few images of recent commissioned printing jobs!

Just finished installing ILSSA’s first exhibition at St. Mary’s College in Indiana. One year of remnants from a dedicated group of ILSSA members. More details soon about the February opening!

 

Fit to Print

Hot Off The Press! Or, more aptly, ready to Print-On-Demand! My first official published article in the current issue of Media-N, Journal of the New Media Caucus, an affiliated society of the College Art Association. The article, which was originally a presentation at the 2011 CAA Conference, is entitled, “Open Edition: Free the Book.” The issue can be read on-line and a printed version is available on Lulu.

Looking good, 2012.

As of January 1st, Flatbed Splendor will be moving into a new studio space in West Asheville with the letterpress likes of Two Step Press and Quill & Arrow Press. More details in the New Year… In the meantime, visit my recently updated Etsy site for Flatbed Splendor goodness!
