Abstract:

In celebration of the hundredth anniversary of the Vandercook proof press, thirty artists were invited to submit a sample of their work with a description of their technique. These samples include text and illustrations using a variety of methods and printing surfaces. Five unbound pamphlets of Vandercook exercises and procedures, three of which -- Vandercook troubleshooting, hand composition, and printing type and polymer -- were created by students during three separate workshops at the Center for Book Arts in New York and are housed in a printed wrapper.
