This three-day event will include demonstrations and workshops taught by a range of experts in letterpress printing and printing-related fields, as well as collaborations where attendees can work together on exciting letterpress projects. From Windmills to Linotypes to Vandys and more, this will be a fun-filled, hands-on weekend for beginner and experienced printer alike. Type on the Cob will take place at Printers’ Hall at Midwest Old Threshers in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, where we’ll have access to their impressive collection of printing and typecasting equipment. You are guaranteed to get your hands dirty and your aprons inky!
