Our next class is held in conjunction with the San Francisco Center for the Book:
From Calligraphy to Photopolymer Plates:
The Typography of Handwriting:
Scanning & Printing Your Handwriting
This class will be held in two sessions, both classes held at Logos Graphics:
- Wednesday, August 24th, 2011 6:30 – 9:30 pm
- Saturday, September 3rd, 2011 from 10 am – 5 pm (co-taught with Lisa Rappoport)
- Fee: $225.00
Letterpress print your own handwriting from a photopolymer plate! This class qualifies you to rent the Center’s photopolymer plate maker.
You will start by scanning the document, then output a high-density negative, create a photopolymer plate and finally, print the plate using letterpress.
On the first evening of this introductory class, John Sullivan will walk you through manipulating your digital file, outputting your negative and creating the plate on his plate maker. During the day-long session, John and Lisa Rappoport will walk you through letterpress printing your photopolymer plates on a Vandercook cylinder press.
