Poster House is thrilled to partner with Robert Wilson, Art Director at Bowne & Co., of the South Street Seaport Museum, for an evening dedicated to the early history of letterpress printing in New York City. In this presentation, he will explore a number of production processes that built the visual landscape of New York, with special attention paid to the typographic trends of broadsides and handbills from the 19th century. At Bowne & Co., artifacts from the museum’s working collection are used in a contemporary practice, preserving the skills and traditions of 19th-century letterpress printing. Join us on a journey of lessons learned at the press, questions warmly welcomed!
