Event description

Description

The modern world was born on a printing press. Once essential to communication, the 500-year-old process is now in danger of being lost as its caretakers age. From self-proclaimed basement hoarders to the famed Hatch Show Print, Pressing On: The Letterpress Film explores the question: why has the letterpress survived in a digital age?

Captivating personalities blend with wood, metal and type as young printers strive to save this historic process in a film created for the designer, type nerd, historian and collector in us all

Check the trailer out here!

Join us in the lobby before and after the film for letterpress postcard printing by artists from SNAP!

This film screening is co-presented by the Alberta North Chapter of the Graphic Designers of Canada, the Society of Northern Alberta Print-artists (SNAP), and the Art Gallery of Alberta.
