Letterpress Road Trip

Pack up the presses and hit the road! That is exactly what Kyle Durrie of Moveable Type did back in 2010 when she felt torn between her two passions - road trips and printmaking. She wasn't about to choose one or the other, so Kyle transformed a 1982 Chevy Step Van into her personal print shop. She set off onto a country-wide journey introducing moveable type to cities east and west, and it's making a big impression on all the communities she visits. When she visited The Curiosity Shoppe San Francisco last July we were amazed at the turnout, especially for such a small space!

The Moveable Type truck updates their tour dates daily, so be sure to find out if it's coming to a town near you. You can go home with hand-cranked posters, cards, and learn a little more about the print process. Visit the website here!
