The First Florida Letterpress Wayzgoose



Nearly 50 printing enthusiasts attended the Inaugural Florida Letterpress Wayzgoose held at the Tampa Book Arts Studio on Saturday, February 23rd. Among other keepsakes, they helped print the one above on the C&P platen press recently donated by Leland Hawes.




Take a look at these photos taken by Studio associate Sean Donnelly:

Hi! It seems I learned about this event too late. I'm interested in learning about letterpress, not sure if there are any classes or workshops coming up in the tampa bay area? Any information would be great.

Thank you!
