NCPR 235: Letterpress Printing: Get inky with the Globe Collection and Press $170.00

Course Description

This two-day workshop will explore the rich archive of the Globe Collection and take that inspiration to the print shop for a hands-on poster printing workshop. Participants will learn the basics of letterpress printing including how to set wood type and poster design Globe's way. Participants will work together on a series of collaborative posters, all skill sets and levels are welcome. Maryland, Globe Poster delivered eye-catching posters to promote concerts, drag races, circuses, carnivals and more. Fluorescent colors, bold wood type, and lettering that shook and shimmied defined Globe’s iconic style, attracting clients from James Brown and Marvin Gaye to Ike and Tina Turner. Globe ceased production in 2010, and the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) stepped forward to purchase a substantial portion of Globe, including wood type, letterpress cuts and posters. The acquisition by MICA keeps Globe’s legacy alive as a working press, a teaching tool, and source for research. NOTE: Additional $35 materials feeFounded in 1929 in Baltimore
