ABOUT THE LETTERPRESS DEPOT:
The Letterpress Depot: a living museum of letterpress printing, typography, design, poetry and art – a working vintage letterpress printshop, with space for exhibits, demonstrations, workshops, events and meetings, as well as typographic research and printing projects – to be a resource available to the community.
Check out our Marketplace for posters sold in support of the Depot and to "buy" workshops. Even though the building is not ready, workshops are up and running around town. Let us know what you or your group wants to learn and we can accommodate. Past workshops can be found under News & Notes while upcoming ones will be also posted in Workshops. The Depot is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.
The depot itself has long attracted attention throughout the area, both for its architectural design and for its historic importance. “The Letterpress Depot” – a name that is inclusive for the community as well as an expansive metaphor for the artistic and historic destinations and journeys we expect our living museum to offer: all aboard!
STILL TIME TO REGISTER FOR THE WAYZGOOSE aka printers idea of heaven
AND TO HELP US GET READY FOR IT
We can also use volunteers to help get the Depot ready for its national debut. We will be working there just about EVERY DAY between now and June 21. If you want to meet Tom there, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 720-480-5358. There's work outdoors, indoors and to get ready for the auction: it's also just fun to be with a group of like-minded people helping transform the Depot and dealing with incoming presses for the auction. (And good news! The patio is DONE so no more bricklaying!).
