Workshop participants will explore creating type and imagery using modular forms, such as lego building bricks, type-high wooden dowels, and P22 Blox. While these techniques can be used in combination with traditional letterpress type and image blocks, modular printing allows novice printers to create compositions without complex lock-up engineering and allows experienced letterpress printers to create experimental compositions.

Instructor bio:

Bob Kelemen is a Cleveland-based graphic designer and artist specializing in letterpress printing. His prints frequently combine vintage wood and metal typography with found objects, such as game pieces, dice, dominoes, Lego building blocks, vinyl record albums, saw blades and wood scraps. Music and a sense of humor play key roles in his work.

Kelemen has served for over 25 years as faculty at universities and colleges, both public and private. He has taught a broad range of courses, including technical, formal and conceptual curriculum to both undergraduate and graduate students. He runs Type High Press at Kent State University, one of the largest academic letterpress facilities in the Midwest.
