The modern world was born on a printing press. Once essential to communication, the 500-year old process is in danger of being lost as its caretakers age. From self-proclaimed basement hoarders to the famed Hatch Show Print, Pressing On: The Letterpress Film explores the question: why has printmaking survived?
The Indianapolis Public Library invites the public to attend this screening of the film, which features local print historian and collector Dave Peat; a discussion with some of the filmmakers will follow.
The screening will take place at the Central Library’s Clowes Auditorium.
