Writing, Printing, Binding in Seattle - Letterpress Class w/John Marshall

If only there was time in life for what's really important. This looks like a superb class by great people. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Writing Printing Binding
A letterpress printed book collaboration

  • 6:30 PM–8:30 PM
  • Monday, 4/4/11–6/13/11
  • $495

Join beloved local poet J.W. (John) Marshall of Open Books and legendary letterpress printer Jules Remedios Faye for an inspirational writing, printing, and book binding class in the School of Visual Concepts’ letterpress studio. John will lead students through the creative writing process, focusing on use of the image in short poetry or prose pieces appropriately sized for in-class letter press printing. Jules will instruct students in the magic of printing and hand-binding. The end result will be a collaborative limited-edition hand-printed, hand-bound book which includes a piece by each student.
Anyone who wishes to experience the pleasure of typesetting their own words and creating an original edition.



  1. I took a letterpress class last year here in Chiacago to create a broadside for one of my chapbook poems- if people have a chance to try this, they definitely should. It's a wonderful experience!

  2. Another reason to move to Seattle.

  3. Hi Angie -
    You would love Seattle and I would be happy to show you all the best bookshops and reading series should you decide to come!
