In conjunction with Brad Freeman and the San Francisco Center for the Book, we are teaching a two-day class about offset printed artists’ books as part of the Blanket Impressions exhibition:
Nationally known book artist Brad Freeman demystifies the offset printing process and demonstrates how it can be used to make artists’ books. The first evening Brad will show how he uses offset as a creative printmaking medium in the production of his artist’s books as well as explaining the pre-press process with samples of the actual printing the students will witness the next day. Brad will show computer files, film, plates, and printed sheets of previous work, as well as some of his artist’s books.
We’re involved in the second day of the class, which will be held here at Logos Graphics. We’ll explain standard pre-press work flow and demonstrate how offset plates are created from digital files. Students will see the setup of two colors on the offset press and printing on different papers. Brad and John will provide students with the language and knowledge to communicate with offset printers when they are working on a project. This class is perfect for experienced printers and book artists as well as those new to the field. Feel free to bring your own questions and projects to class.
Class registration is administered through the San Francisco Center for the Book.
