New Artist’s Book: Throwaway
We will be at City Hall in Reinbeck, Iowa from 5-8pm for Miracle on Main on November 9th, with a table of artsy gifts like letterpress prints, pocket-books, and notepads. Businesses, I would love it if you stopped by to talk about your graphic design needs.
Caveworks Press & Studios was an exhibitor at Artapalooza in Cedar Falls, Iowa. New letterpress prints and keychain books were some of the items for sale.
The upcoming Reinbeck Art Festival (September 22, 2012) will also feature us. Please see this post for the goods on that.
Caveworks Press is one of 100 printers featured in the book The Vandercook 100. We’re really excited about this and hope you will check out the link. Here’s what the publisher says about it:
“ The Vandercook 100 celebrates 100 years of printing on the Vandercook proof press (19091-2009) and showcases 100 of today’s most significant letterpress printers using the Vandercook press. The selected printers are internationally respected teachers, practitioners, and designers recognized for their diversity of design and printing processes, their passion for letterpress and their love of the Vandercook proof press.”
I’m starting to document the BookArtObject edition, Throwaway, that I am making. Follow along in the conceptualization and realization of an artist’s book. Click the link below:
I’ve joined the international artist’s book collective exchange “Book Art Object.” Small groups of artists make an edition and exchange them with each other. Meanwhile, the blog makes it easy to see how everyone’s work is progressing. It’s going to be enriching and bewitching for the next year. I’ve made my intro to the group on the blog as a contributor. See link below.
Two of our book purses or “pocketbooks” are featured in a show of Altered Books at the Marshalltown Public LIbrary, 105 W. Boone Street, Marshalltown, Iowa until November 20.
We are so excited that soon a new book will be out featuring our press profile as a Vandercook owner. Currently, The Vandercook 100 is in production. Updates as soon as we know anything.
2009 was the 100th birthday of the Vandercook press . Paul Moxon invited printers who own a Vandercook to create a print for a print exchange, or bundle. The number of printers was to be 100. The prints have been shown in various exhibits worldwide. Caveworks Press was thrilled to participate. See the entire Vandercook Centenary Gallery here here.
