Prerequisite: 3.0 credits of first-year studio and 1.0 credit of Liberal Studies (including the Writing course with a passing grade of 60%).

This course will bring art and design students together to explore applications of letterpress printing in contemporary typography. Both contemporary typography and desktop publishing have their roots in the tradition of letterpress. This tradition is introduced to students by utilizing methods of handset lead and wood type, linotype, foil-stamping, hand-cut wood, linoleum blocks, and photographic polymer plates. Moreover, contemporary design platforms provide a forum for interpreting the relationship between typography, language and meaning.
