[BKARTS] letterpress class in NYC on Wednesday evenings

Cooper Union Continuing Education classes begin in early June.
This summer classes in Typography and Calligraphy include a new class 
in our newly renovated Letterpress area. The studio has 5 Vandercooks, an 
extensive collection of book and display type in metal and wood and a view of 
lower Manhattan:  

Letterpress Printing on the Vandercook Press  

In this class conducted in the Cooper Union letterpress studio students will 
learn the basics of printing in letterpress. You will learn how to set type 
using wood and metal typefaces and how to print your work on the studio’s 
Vandercook presses. This will be a hands-on class that will suit those who 
love design and typography but need a reprieve from the computer screen. This 
course will be an in-depth experience in letterpress for those interested in 
taking things beyond basic hand-set type composition. We will explore ways 
that images, foil stamping, die cuts, scoring and perforation can be 
incorporated in your designs to achieve great effects. During class the 
students will have time to work on projects of their own using the studio 
facilities (primarily the Vandercook presses) and to troubleshoot problems 
encountered with the assistance of the instructor. There is no pre-requisite 
for this course, but a familiarity with basic type terminology will be 
 Wednesday, 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM; 9 sessions starting June 4, 2008, ending July 
30, 2008 
Cost $290
