Letterpress Workers International Summit 2015

Letterpress Workers International Summit  (LPW) is an annual event held in Milan since 2012 that brings together outstanding designers and artists dedicated to letterpress in Europe and Latin America. Organized by Officina Tipográfica Novepunti held in Leoncavallo, the area with the most social activity of the city that becomes for a few days in a kind of artistic residence in which all participants-about thirty in this edition- share their knowledge and experience working on a common theme and whose works end up materializing in the edition of a book / catalog bringing together the different contributions.

The meeting will be held from the 3rd to the 7th of June, and besides enjoying the process of shared work – reserved to invited participants – there are foreseen other events for the general public including exhibitions, conferences and workshops that can be checked out on the website of LPW, where the overall program and the list of all members of the present edition can be checked as well.

I do not know how many times I have read the thesis of Dafi Kühne‘s bachelor thesis project, how much I envied the work of Armina Ghazaryan, Justin Knopp, Nomad Letterpress, The Print Project or  Novepunti (to name only a few) …

Anxious to share knowledge and to work with all of them – and to start warming up – I have printed this shirt especially for the occasion… I hope to succeed with it!
