Antique Methods, Modern Design: Letterpress in the 21st Century
Starshaped Press Artist’s Talk and Book Release Party

Since 1999, Jennifer Farrell has operated Starshaped Press in Chicago. All work is done with metal and wood type, making Starshaped one of the few presses in the country producing commercial work while preserving antiquated letterpress materials. Jennifer’s work has been recognized in print and design blogs, and has appeared in shows throughout the USA and Europe.
This talk will share key details about the history of Starshaped Press, while looking at some of the many projects and custom solutions necessary when art meets commerce.
After the talk, Jennifer will be on hand to chat informally and celebrate the collaborative release of “An Alphabet of Sorts”, a book co-published by Starshaped Press and Wells College Press.

The event is Free and open to the general public
Refreshments will be provided.
