Come to History Park for a hands-on demonstration and meet and greet with The Itinerant Printer, Chris Fritton! Chris is coming to the letterpress print shop of the San Jose Printers’ Guild in History Park as part of his year-long journey throughout the lower 48 states, covering over 30,000 miles, and creating over 30,000 prints in over 100 letterpress print shops.
Print with Chris in the print shop from noon to 4:00PM, followed by a presentation at 5:00PM on the museum grounds covering the history and lore of tramp printing, and a reception following with light refreshments.
The event is FREE and OPEN TO ALL. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can plan accordingly for refreshments.
Also, don’t miss seeing the exhibit Slugs, Dingbats & Tramp Printers: Printing in the Santa Clara Valley, in the Pasetta House at History Park. The exhibit will be open before and after the presentation.
