Sammi & The Dishes Go To The Ball...

Just heard fun news that "Sammi Won't Do The Dishes" & some of its COPY JAM Cohorts will be going on a road trip to Chicago this summer for the sixth annual PRINTERS' BALL! More detalles...

July 30 from 6-11 pm
1104 South Wabash Avenue, Chicago
Free admission

From The Poetry Foundation...
In its sixth annual celebration of print culture, the Printers’ Ball hosts over 250 literary organizations from around the world. The most comprehensive free literary showcase in the nation, the Printers’ Ball yearly attracts more than 2,000 publishers, editors, writers, designers, and readers.

Marking the opening of the event’s doors to electronic publications, websites, and blogs, and demonstrating how print and digital media can complement one another, the theme for Printers’ Ball 2010 is PRINT <3 DIGITAL.

Print media, including “little magazines,” weeklies, glossies, zines, small presses, and specialty print and design houses, will offer a diverse array of ink on paper, with many items available for free. The evening’s activities will also include screenprinting, letterpress, and offset demonstrations; papermaking; digital installations; screenings; readings; and live music.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Book and Paper Arts at Columbia College and the Student Affairs Offices at Columbia College.


This sounds great! It conjures a delightful image of a pumpkin/carriage bearing a stack of prints and a glass Xerox photocopier to The Windy City, bumping and clanging down the road as the clock nears midnight...

Northeast printing pals...who's down for a summer road trip?

Tonson v. Walker

"The shop was regaining its strength–ready to reestablish itself and take on a risky project. Here on this corner, then, was exactly what the pair of old actors needed: a press that was well staffed, experienced, and just a little hungry."

~from The Book of William, How Shakespeare's First Folio Conquered The World by Paul Collins, 2009
