Moveable Type: Cross-Country Adventures in Printing 

When: Fri., March 9, 6-9 p.m. 2012
Movable type has been around for almost 1,000 years, but Portland, Oregon, letterpress printer Kyle Durrie still puts equal stock in both words. Her vision of maximum press motion is a mobile project titled Moveable Type: Cross-Country Adventures in Printing. Durrie started with a 1982 Chevy van, tricked it out with a full letterpress print shop (built-in cabinets, a sign press, a tabletop platen press) and embarked last summer on a major road trip. She makes her area debut from 6 to 9 p.m. at Hammerpress (110 Southwest Boulevard, 816-421-1929), with demonstrations and workshops fueled by her love of old-fashioned printing. She heads to the University of Kansas' Spencer Museum of Art (1301 Mississippi, Lawrence, 785-864-4710) on Thursday, March 8, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Get details and preview Durrie's work at type-truck.com.
