After-Hours Print Workshop @ Bowne Printers, 19th-Century-Style Print Shop
Join New York Adventure Club for a special after-hours session of Fresh Prints at Bowne Printers as we utilize antique nineteenth-century ornamental moveable type from the Frederick Nelson Phillips “Tri-Arts Collection.”
This collection of type consists of 938 individual wooden boxes, filled with 500 individual nineteenth-century display typefaces, many of which have never seen digitization into the computer.
Using forms set from the collections, the resident printers of Bowne Printers will take New York Adventure Club through 200 years of printing press history; participation and press operation is highly encouraged, as participants get to keep the prints that they pull over the course of the night.
Since it’s the holidays, we’ll make some prints on Happy New Year cards!
