Visting Artist Workshop: Flashy Fleurons & Luxurious Letterforms with Jen Farrell

to Apr 14

Visting Artist Workshop: Flashy Fleurons & Luxurious Letterforms with Jen Farrell

SATURDAY, April 13 & SUNDAY April 14 [10–4 PM] • $225 All Materials Included

Working with the Signal Return type collection over two days, participants will set and print one or two (depending on personal choice) pieces. We’ll first approach the idea of creating something decorative and symmetrical and purely ornamental. The second project will be to create a non-symmetrical letterform from the ornaments on hand.

At the height of its popularity in the 1800s, letterpress printing presented printers with incredible options for creating everything from simple flower embellishments to elaborate systems of illustrations built with ornament. What can we learn from looking at examples of historical designs, how they survived (or didn’t) and their role in design and print vernacular over the century to follow? In this workshop, we’ll examine the quirks of old ornaments, how to keep them vital and allow them to influence and inform modern design practices.

During the course of the weekend workshop we will study specimen books that show the type/ornament at its zenith, start to ‘see’ how ornament can be used to accent or illustrate, look at good practices for printing metal type, examine ornament for visual positive/negative space, usefulness and condition, and get tips and tricks for getting the best out of old metal type

Instructor: Jennifer Farrell of Starshaped Press
Since 1999, Jennifer Farrell has operated Starshaped Press in Chicago, focusing on printing everything from business cards to posters, as well as custom commissions, wholesale ephemera and limited edition prints & books. All work in the studio is done with metal and wood type, making Starshaped one of the few presses in the country producing commercial work while preserving antique type and related print materials. Jennifer’s work has been repeatedly recognized both in print and design blogs, and has appeared in poster shows throughout the USA and Europe. Work can be viewed at www.starshaped.com.

The Poisoned City: Flint's Water and the American Urban Tragedy by Anna Clark
In the first full account of this American tragedy, The Poisoned City recounts the gripping story of Flint’s poisoned water through the people who caused it, suffered from it, and exposed it. It is a chronicle of one town, but could also be about any American city, all made precarious by the neglect of infrastructure and the erosion of democratic decision making. Places like Flint are set up to fail—and for the people who live and work in them, the consequences can be fatal.

Lecture: "Blooks: The Art of Books That Aren’t" by Mindell Dubansky

Detroit Institute of Arts Lecture Hall

Mindell Dubansky is head of the Sherman Fairchild Center for Book Conservation at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she has worked as a conservator and Preservation Librarian for over 30 years, She is also a collector and is a long-time member of the Grolier Club. Dubansky has written extensively on the book arts, particularly in the areas of 19th century publisher’s bindings, hand papermaking, bookbinding and of course, the subject of this presentation, the history of book-shaped objects, or what she calls "blooks" 

Blook-objects have a prominent place in this reinvention of the role of the book. All over the world, for hundreds of years, people have been making, collecting and presenting book-objects that reflect their devotion and respect for books and for each other.  They have been treasured and passed down through the generations, and many thousands reside in private homes, public museums and libraries around the world. Blooks have been used to celebrate and memorialize important occasions and serve as reminders of memorable visits to important places, receptacles to hold valuable objects and are the source of great amusement.

The Paranoia Says the Helicopter Searches For Me
as the announcement
of the training
exercise on campus
for the police force comes
into my classroom and I joke
about the threat, about
my blood pressure as if
there wasn't a shooting
at a community college
weeks before, as if I weren't
the same complexion as the targets
cops use at their shooting ranges.

KNOW IT BY HEART: A SLAM EVENT

Thursday, October 27, 7-9pm

In the introduction to the graphic novel version of his classic work FAHRENHEIT 451, author Ray Bradbury suggests that readers "should name the one book that he/she would most want to memorize and protect from any censors" and further consider "why it would be a valuable asset to be recited and remembered in the future." 

So, what book would you choose? What text would you memorize and protect for posterity? (Take a deep breath! So much to choose from, we understand!)  Join us this evening certainly to share your responses and perhaps to recite your chosen text--or excerpts of it--in the poetry slam to follow.  Prizes will be awarded!

This programming is made possible with the support of the Michigan Humanities Council
