Primary Instructor:

This class will be held in the letterpress studio of the Duderstadt Center where we can print text using metal type in the tradition of Gutenberg (Johann, not Steve). It was with metal type that the first modern printing was accomplished, and type will allow us to explore the physical and visual aspects of writing. In this class you will hand set prose and poetry written by literary authors: Virginia Woolf, William Butler Yeats, Jerome David Salinger, Marilynne Robinson, and more (see the paragraphs already selected, or suggest your own at: http://www.manchester-press.com/pylcrafte/).

Ultimately, you’ll write your own prose or poetry, set it in metal type, and print an edition. Through this work we will consider John Ruskin’s idea about the relation of art to practices: “It is only by labour that thought can be made healthy, and only by thought that labour can be made happy, and the two cannot be separated with impunity."
