Hot Metal in motion

"Hot Metal and Cool Paper: The Black Art of Making Books" is up in the Boone and George-Ann Knox I Gallery, leading into "American Letterpress: The Art of Hatch Show Print," through Nov. 6. Here are a couple of short videos to give you a taste for the exhibition.

This one shows the printing of the rack cards that will soon be in the gallery, on a printing press owned by Todd Rivers, co-curator of the exhibition.

This one goes briefly through the gallery to show what the exhibition actually looks like. You can't read any of the text very well, though, so make sure to come see it in person.
