In honor of National Print Day, today I give you a post about the Kyle Durrie's Moveable Type Truck!
The Moveable Type Truck is a mobile print shop built into the back of a 1982 Chevy step van. On her website, Kyle explains that she "spent ten months in 2011-2012 traveling all over North America, sharing the good word about printing the old fashioned way."
Kyle Durrie is also the proprietor of Power and Light Press, currently based out of Portland, but soon relocating to New Mexico.
Learn more about Power and Light Press at www.powerandlightpress.com; and, more specifically, about the Moveable Type Truck at www.type-truck.com.
The Type Truck was parked outside the San Francisco Main Library today from 1-4 pm. Visitors were invited to step inside and print something of their own on Kyle's tabletop press!
The woodcut printing process is revealed in this post from Creative Review.
Issue 42 of the Little White Lies Magazine is titled "Lawless" and features a woodcut of Tom Hardy's character from the film Lawless. Follow the link for more images and a wonderful little video illustrating the woodcut process.
