Amos Kennedy in SLC, part 3

The two linocut asterisks locked up, inked and ready to print on the Book Arts Program’s Vandercook SP20.

Feeding the first sheet of the final run into the grippers.

Pulling the first print from the press.

The asterisks are like warm red frosting on the cake.

This was a challenging project to coordinate, but it turned out great. I can’t wait to see them hanging up around Salt Lake City. The true measure of success will be in how fast they get swiped from shop windows and light posts.

Please download a high resolution scan of the finished poster, share with friends, come to the FREE film screening, and don’t miss this rare chance to take a workshop with Amos Kennedy in Salt lake City! Spencer and I would like to thank all the event sponsors: Book Arts Program, AIGA Salt Lake City, The Mandate Press, XPEDX, and Smart & Wiley.
