Ladies of Letterpress Conference

August 13, 2012 1 comment

Bailey and I had a great time representing Oak Knoll at the Ladies of Letterpress Conference last weekend. We learned a lot, admired beautiful examples of printing (and even bought a few!), met some nice people, and ate some great food. It was our first time in Asheville, and we loved the city. We will have to go back when we have more time!

Here are some of the pictures we took at the conference:

Thank you to the Ladies of Letterpress for putting on such a great event. We look forward to seeing you again in October for Oak Knoll Fest!

The second annual Ladies of Letterpress Conference is a mere two weeks away, and we’re getting really excited to be exhibiting down in (hopefully) sunny Asheville, North Carolina. The conference starts Thursday, August 2nd and finishes on August 5th. Each day is filled with events, including a film screening, a silent auction, plenty of panels, a keynote speech by Abigail Rorer of The Lone Oak Press (who is also coming to Oak Knoll Fest!), and an expanded printer’s fair that’s open to the general public! We’ll be exhibiting at the printer’s fair, bringing titles about letterpress printing as well as a sampling of our other publications.

The conference’s early bird registration rate has been extended to July 24th, so sign up now.

Get in touch with the Ladies of Letterpress by following them on twitter, reading and commenting on their blog, and by finding them on Facebook. Also on Facebook, you can take a look at pictures from last year’s conference.
