ART is the LANGUAGE the SOUL Speaks poster.
Book Arts Press,
Although the commercial use of wood type declined—and then largely disappeared—in the 20th century with the advent of photographic printing processes, today it is enjoying a resurgence among book artists and fine press printers. In 2019, the letterpress printer and artist Amos Kennedy offered a printing workshop at RBS as part of the School’s “Making & Teaching: Printing Technologies at Work” Presswork Symposium. Kennedy produced this poster using RBS’s Annenberg wood type and delivered a lecture that discussed his community-based approach to printing.
