The Printer’s Ball

We get excited about print. A card, a poster, an ad, an invitation, a broadside, a lit mag. You can take a printed thing home with you, shelve it, hang it on a wall, stuff it in a pocket and–and this is the best part–rediscover it later.

If you’re like us you’ll love The Printer’s Ball, a one-day extravaganza celebrating presses and magazines with print-making demos, screenings, readings and music.  Join 2,000 readers, publishers, editors, writers and designers in Chicago on July 30 for fabulous freebies and joyous attitudes. Keep an eye out for the shining fork and hot red cover of Issue 00.

Digital mavens and enthusiasts, no need to feel left out. This year, sponsors Poetrymagazine and The Center for Book and Paper Arts at Columbia College are promoting both. The theme of the ball is Print <3 Digital. We like web stuff, too (this is a blog, right?). It’s not either/or, it’s and.
