Moveable Type in Flint, Tuesday!

truck-exterior1Kyle Durrie, the owner of Power and Light Press in Portland, Oregon and inspired letterpress printer is touring the United States (and parts of Canada too!) in a 1982 Chevy Step Van that has been converted into a mini-studio to teach and demonstrate printing to interested students for a nine month road trip. The project was funded via Kickstarter, and the truck customization complete with a mid-century sign press and a platen press from 1873 is really inspiring.

On Tuesday, September 13th, Moveable Type will be at the Flint Farmer’s Market from noon-5pm. It is free to attend, learn and pull your own print, brought to you by Flint Handmade. Can’t make it? Catch up with the tour on Kyle’s blog , or on Twitter – her handle is @typetruck.
