22 May WA Wayzgoose 2021
The WA WAYZGOOSE today was a humbling and inspiring catch up with other letterpress printers, printmakers, typographers, book artists, and enthusiasts from around Perth.
Location: Bright Press, located in the Village section within Whiteman Park. Enter via Beechboro Rd or Drumpellier Dr (aka the old Lord St).
We were not able to meet up in 2020 due to the pandemic, but we are excited to catch up with everyone for a day of letterpress this year. We are delighted to be screening Los Ultimos (Endless Letterpress), a documentary about a group of young people in Argentina rediscovering the greatest technical innovation in the history of the written word – the typesetting printing, amidst the advancement of new technologies, printing presses are closing their workshops.
Featuring also an amazing presentation from Phil Gambrill of Fresh Lemon discussing type and ‘bad printing’, and the 150 years of Western Australia’s Government Printing Office.
