23 Feb 2022: Angie Butler – These books of handwork and hybridity remember the body…


Through studying and working with poets, printers, artists, designers and others across a series of projects in the UK, Europe and the USA, Angie has identified particular methodologies and methods of application by individual practitioners who use letterpress printing to make their artists’ books. These methods are important to document and establish benchmarks and standards as part of the tradition of good studio practice in an expanding field. A baseline for assessing the physical and psychological relationship of the practitioner to their equipment and the commitment to the practice of letterpress printing within artists’ books practice.

This discussion considers that contemporary artist-publishing activities that employ the letterpress process, are embedded in how practitioners articulate their bodies and senses to engage with materials, equipment, and presses to develop their work.
