Letterpress By Bike

Meet at the IPRC, 917 SW Oak Street. #218, Portland
Printers and fans of letterpress printing (or anyone else curious), let’s go on a bike ride and visit two letterpress shops. We’ll meet at the Independent Publishing Resource Center and get a tour of the Letterpress room that has a neat collection of table-top letterpresses and drawers full of type. The coolest part is the IPRC lettterpress room is a community printing shop, so if you want to learn letterpress you can! Then we’ll take a nice bike ride down to Sellwood for a tour of Textura/INK-A! Press. Inge Bruggeman’s book arts and commercial presses. The ride will be leisurely and social and loop back to the start.
Ride is sponsored by the IPRC, www.iprc.org

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
