A Printing Pilgrimage

A couple of weeks ago, whilst on a brief trip to Antwerp in Belgium, I visited the fantastic Plantin-Moretus Museum. Arriving by train at the ludicrously impressive Antwerpen-Centraal station, the city itself has a long history of being a focus for art and culture, both with it’s school of painting which included Rubens and Van Dyck among others, and for the emerging world of printing in the 16th Century.

The Plantin-Moretus Museum is located in the former home of Christophe Plantin; A French humanist, intellectual, polyglot who had traveled to Antwerp to set-up what has been described as the first industrial print works, in the early 16th Century. There he became a prolific printer, publisher and entrepreneur, producing some 2450 titles in his lifetime, including the Plantin Polyglot; his 8-volume Bible set in Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek and Syriac, as well as the Dictionarium Tetraglotton which was a dictionary in Greek, Latin, French and Flemish.

After his death, the business was continued by his son-in-law; Jan I Moretus, who carried on their traditions of high quality and diverse printing, issuing another 640 works over a broad range of subjects including religious texts, scientific manuscripts, botanical titles, atlases, anatomical works, mathematical and medical manuals.

In the 18th and 19th Centuries, as technology shifted and the business declined, the Plantin-Moretus company managed to keep the residence, which encompassed the print works, type foundry and bookshop, preserved exactly as it had been in the days of its founders. Finally in 1876, Edward Moretus sold the company to the city of Antwerp, whereupon it was converted into a museum, later being declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005.

Wandering through the building, it starts off essentially as a series of townhouses, the family home looking onto the Vrijdagmarkt, but you quickly realise that the building includes a tranquil inner courtyard and then three more wings, each of which contain the type foundry, library, bookshop and the print-works itself. It’s their collection of books, printing blocks and other ephemera that really blew me away. The titles themselves are simply beautiful, especially the atlases from 1579, the botanical manuals with the original illustration woodblocks and the multilingual bibles. The type foundry was also a sight to behold, as it included items such as a set of original Garamond punches and matricies by Claude Garamont. Finally there was the print-works, with its racks of original type and lined up presses; five from the 17th – 18th Century and then two from around 1600; the oldest preserved printing presses in the world. The type collection itself was amazing, with a large number of fleurons, ornamentals as well as numerous trays of Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek type too.

All in all, it was an amazing house and a fantastic place to visit, even if you’re not a type or print nerd, although if you are then it’s definitely worth the pilgrimage.

A couple of weeks ago we welcomed the great and the good into our workshop as part of the annual Cockpit Arts Summer Open studios. We were running demonstrations on our, lovingly restored, treadle platen press; showing people the basics of how it works, the principles of letterpress and then letting the brave ones step up to the plate and have a go. We were printing greyboard beer mats with a composed design from our usual collection and we thought it’d be nice to break out the super bright fluorescent orange for the event. Fun and games all round and no lost fingers either! Plus it was a chance to show off our new range of wedding stationery and personalised stationery sets.

We also launched several new products over the weekend, namely our Pencil Notebook, which is a flip top style with a concealed pencil tucked away and graph paper inside, plus we also had two new card designs; Get Some Cider Inside Yer & The Big Beard Boys Brigade. There were our new generic Save The Date cards as well which can be used for anything from weddings to birthdays to picnics. Finally there were our two new limited edition prints; If It Is To Be and Even The Smallest Crank. Both were printed on our flatbed proofing press and were composed from our larger woodblock type.

So we have returned from our escapades last weekend, having talked to ten train loads of passengers, given out hundreds of free postcard prints and developed a new found respect for the staff who had to push those trolleys all day everyday!

It started bright and early on the train from Victoria. With our modified trolley all cleaned up, branded and packed full of equipment, we set off to Brighton. Unsure of how the public would respond to being offered a free letterpress, limited edition print rather than a sandwich and a cup of tea, we were pleasantly surprised as many people were thoroughly interested on their way to the beach. Information on the Village of Type, Ditchling Museum and the Brighton Festival was dished out aplenty along with dozens of prints too. Arriving at Brighton there was just enough time for a coffee re-fuel before we were off again back to London.

All in all we did ten trips on mostly busy to packed trains full of people heading to the beach or the Brighton Festival itself, about 600 prints were pulled and dished out and we had chats with tons of people, introducing many to Ditchling Museum and village.

Having just completed one madcap event involving printing with a steamroller, we’re straight onto the next one this weekend; Letterpress on Board!

Once again in conjunction with Ditchling Museum and as part of their Village of Type celebration of 100 years of the Johnston typeface, we are setting ourselves up to do some live letterpress printing on a train. To coincide with the start of the Brighton Festival this weekend, we’ll be taking an Adana 8×5, fitted to a specially modified trolley, on several trips between London Victoria and Brighton. We’ll offering the public a chance to have a go at printing and take away a specially designed postcard for free.

SORT Adana 85

We created the design itself with a mixture of regular Gill Sans, and some of the more diverse variations such as Gill Sans Cameo and Gill Sans Light Shadowed, from our collection of lead type.

So if you’re heading down to Brighton for the festival this weekend, or up to London for that matter, and fancy printing one of these postcards, then look out for us on the following trains:

Press On! At the Big Steam Print

After many days spent digging, scraping and carving our way through 1m square of lino, we were ready for the Big Steam Print last Saturday to help celebrate 100 years of the Johnston typeface and the Village of Type in collaboration with Ditchling Museum. Setting up at the fantastic London Transport Museum depot in Acton, we were greeted with a solid toot from the whistle of the steam roller, all the way from Amberley. Some of the other groups had been printing already that morning with fine results from New North Press, James Brown, East London Printmakers, Red Hot Press, Jealous Gallery, and of course Lucky Budgie who came up with the whole idea.

We got down to the task of inking, which took a fair while by hand, especially since we need a good thick coat and only had time for two prints. Inking complete, we set the lino down in the path of the steam roller, followed by the paper and a protective mat. Then it was time to print! Naturally we both had to have a go riding on the footplate, (so we could properly supervise the process of course) as 12.5 tons of pressure was applied to our lino. The unveiling was a bit nerve wracking but the results were great, as you can see below with astonished onlookers Ruth and Brendan from iamacrylic.

All in all it was a great day out and excellent fun doing a project like this, it’s not very often you get the chance to print with a steam roller! We’d like to say a huge thank you to Ditchling Museum, Lucky Budgie and the London Transport Muesum for organising it, plus of course everyone who backed it on the ArtFund / Art Happens site; as it wouldn’t have happened without you all.

The prints themselves will be on display as part of an exhibition at the Phoenix Gallery in Brighton on the 6th – 21st of August. Keep an eye on the Ditchling Museum’s website as well for news of the other Village of Type events that are happening.

As letterpress printers, we’re naturally very keen on big lumps of cast iron and silghtly impractical methodologies, so when we found out that Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft were organising an event to print using a 12.5 tonne vintage steamroller we had to get involved!

The event is being funded via Art Happens and needs your support to make it happen. Donations have some great rewards including prints by Anthony Burrill, a Big Steam Print tote bag by Lucky Budgie. A limited edition gold letterpress print by Thomas Mayo or the chance to make your own print and sit on the steamroller to print it.

The print days are scheduled to go ahead at the end of March and into June. We’ll be attending the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of April at the London Transport Museum, Acton Depot. The other dates are as follows:

28 March – Amberley Museum & Heritage Centre (museum entrance fees apply)

23/24 April – London Transport Museum, Acton depot open weekend (museum entrance fees apply)

22 May, 12-5pm – Brighton on the Level, as part of Brighton Festival, free

18 June, 12-5pm – Ditchling Village Fair, free

We’ve already ordered our giant bit of lino and are sharpening our tools, ready to make the first cuts. There’ll be a long list of other letterpress printers, designers and students from schools, colleges and Universities who’ll be taking part as well.

So if you have a keen interest in letterpress, vintage cast iron machinery, vast pieces of lino and trouser-worryingly high amounts of pressure then do please head over to the crowdfunding page and help make this happen!
