The Whittington Press Open Day 2017

Andrew Anderson Linocut

This year our annual open day will take place on Saturday 2 September, beginning at 12pm. We will have three proofing presses in operation, run by our friends from The Letterpress Collective, The Print Project & Effra Press & Typefoundry. Our usual array of stall holders are this year joined by Russell Maret and Barbara Henry from the USA & Peter Allen from France

The Press will have on show its two latest publications, A slow ride to India and Vance Gerry & the Weatherbird Press, and sheets from Matrix 35, containing articles on Adanaland, Stan Lane & the Kliluk project should be running through the Heidelberg. In addition, Double Dagger 2, featuring Thomas Mayo, Stan Donwood & Novo Typo will be hot off the press and available for purchase for the first time.

As ever, Neil Winter will be demonstrating the Monotype Casters and we’ll have a selection of printers equipment & type for sale (this year we have a wood-type junkies stall). The open day coincides with the village fete so if you’re feeling peckish there will be a BBQ. We are expecting good weather.
