With the infusion of DIY culture in Portland, we’re not too surprised to find it home to an event such as the upcoming 4th annual Portland Letterpress Printers Expo. The expo provides attendees with the opportunity to learn more about the craft and to purchase equipment and type, etc. However, I’m mostly psyched about the potential to get a bargain bin piece to decorate my wall!
According to the announcement on EM SPACE:
Last year, the event was a huge success drawing hundreds of people interested in finding old type, actual table-top presses, beautifully printed keepsakes, and bargain bin steals.
Basic event information is as follows:
- Location: Outdoor event adjacent to Em Space Book Arts Center
- Address: 323 SE Division Pl, Portland (map)
- Date: Saturday, Aug 20, 2011
- Hours and Admission Fee: $2 from 11am to 2pm, Free from 2 to 5 pm
