The way words are set on a page can alter impression and give literally “deeper” meaning to a poem. In this 2-day intensive, learn how making measured decisions about font, size, color and arrangement, along with the physical experience of setting type and printing, can bring out a fuller visual and tactile dimensions to your work. Participants will type set work, choose color and paper and then print a broadside edition of twenty. Class capacity is 10.
