invite you to 
The Printed Page
JUNE 4, 5.30–7pm
Experimedia, State Library of Victoria, Melbourne VIC

 In the midst of the digital age, pause to admire the tactile beauty of the printed page. Join us for an illustrated talk on printing and hands-on demonstration of typesetting on a classic Adana letterpress machine. 

Hear artist and printmaker Vicki Reynolds explain her creative process, then watch as a Francesca Sasnaitis' poem is hand-set using letterpress technology – an intricate process where text is set letter by letter and line by line. Working with artists Marian Crawford, Greg Harrison, Francesca Sasnaitis and Trent Walter, the hand-printed pages will be collated into an artist book, combining poetry and the visual arts in a unique art form.
