The interweb is great and all that but GOD it takes up FAR TOO MUCH time which could be spent outside chatting to a horned goat about which Bathory LP they prefer or chasing rabbits around a minefield wearing clown shoes. Right?
Updating this website is a complete ball-ache.
We’re on Twitter & Facebook. But Facebook completely sucks and why the hell would you want to update a website, twitter feed, Facebook page, YouTube account or whatever ALL THE TIME? That’s insane.
So if anyone has read this far and actually gives a fuck, there’s now a Tumblr page – this is an ‘online dumping ground’ for anything and everything related to The Print Project, pictures of work in progress, three legged cats, dogs wearing dresses, a printing press or two, found bits of fluff off the internet, music, videos, stuff that’s great/shit etc.
Check it out here.
Something big and stupid is coming. It might not work out and it could all end in tears, but y’know, so what. Some big hints have already been dropped. Any the wiser? No? Don’t worry.
Some of the printed output of The Print Project can now be found at:
Nook & Cranny (Liverpool)
Made North (Sheffield)
Hotcakes (Hebden Bridge)
Colours May Vary (Leeds)
West Yorkshire Print Workshop (Mirfield)
If you want to stock anything — get in touch.
Workshops / Events / Exhibitions:
Currently the only regular letterpress workshops we are running (i.e. get your grubby hands on our wood type) are taking place at West Yorkshire Print Workshop, these courses are immensely popular. Book here
Find The Print Project at Smalltown Ink on April 24th for an all day drop in printing marathon. You’ll also find Richard ‘Pink Milkfloat’ Lawrence there kicking up a storm with his ink and type.
We’ll be doing something (yapping or printing or both) on May 11th at Just Do(ing) It, Again: The Politics of DIY and Self-Organised Culture
We’ll be at Saltaire Arts Trail on May Bank Holiday Monday 27th — drop by and pull yourself a ‘Lost in Space’ themed print.
At the end of June we’ll be at a small festival in the South West along with the Pink Milkfloat and some very big lumps of printing machinery.
The image on the top-right of this post was made for NO FLY POSTERS — and can be currently seen on the side of a boarded up pub in Manchester.
Our James Blackshaw & Shipley Alternative posters were included in the Flyposting 2 Exhibition.
Currently a number of posters are on show at the Editions exhibition in Mirfield.
And if you are due to receive a deluxe copy of The Fine Press Book Association’s journal ‘Parenthesis’ (no. 24) you’ll find a piece by The Print Project in there.
In November 2012 we had a poster included in the Letterpress: Something to Say exhibition at St. Brides Library.
The Print Project gave a talk at Leeds Print Festival in January (gulp). Cue lots of swears and ramblings and a few minor heart attacks. Being the opening act to Matthew the Horse and Alan Kitching was just a touch scary, oh and Alan Kitching ate my curry!
And it’s only March. Things can only get worse.
