Animated Type

     A Showcase of ​Letterpress Animation


      December 1, 2013


A Showcase of Letterpress Animation


This first-time showcase was organized to encourage and highlight experimentation in the medium of letterpress-printed animation. It was premiered at the College Book Arts Association Conference in Jan. 2014


24 films and objects from the US, Europe and Canada were chosen for this showcase. We are encouraged by the work we have seen and the hint of what will come as a continued dialog occurs between the disciplines of animation and the print arts. We hope to travel this showcase and expand it to include more submissions as they come in.


Please contact the organizers if you would like to screen this showcase and/or participate in the future.


Many thanks go to Marnie Powers-Torrey and her crew in Salt Lake City for helping organize this event as part of the College Book Art Association’s conference “Print, Produce, Publish” in 2014.
