Abstract

Dartmouth student, Phoebe Novello (Class of 2017) designed and printed this poster as part of the 25th Anniversary of the Dartmouth Book Arts Workshop in 2015. Reinstated after a twenty-year hiatus, the Books Arts Workshop offers free letterpress and bookbinding tuition to not only Dartmouth students but also members of the wider Dartmouth community.
For this poster Phoebe used the technique of pressure printing where a flexible plate is run through the press behind the sheet to be printed. Anything flat and flexible can be used, like leaves, fabric including lace, and paper with cut-outs. This is known as an ‘indirect impression’ and is by nature never as clear cut an image as direct type-to-paper printing.
