Thinking about buying a letterpress or have one that needs some TLC? Crank through the "how-to's" with renowned press expert Paul Moxon. This intensive day with the Book Arts Program's cylinder presses provides all the basics and beyond to keep presses in top condition. Moxon walks participants through points of maintenance, cleaning, lubrication, addressing potential problems, making direct repairs, and comparison of various models and brands. An understanding of the interrelated mechanisms of a flatbed proof press will aid in trouble-shooting common problems during printing. Bring your questions, photos, and/or broken hearts (oops!) parts for advisement.
