The Printers' Ball takes over Hubbard Street Lofts this Saturday
The Printers' Ball, Chicago's annual celebration of local print culture, returns this weekend, Saturday 27. This year, Spudnik Press takes over sponsorship duties, hosting the event during the day (in past years, it has been an evening affair) and dialing up the printmaking focus. This year, in addition to the usual free dispersal of local books, magazines and print ephemera, there will also be hands-on activities including risograph demos, bookbinding workshops and on-the-spot tote bag screenprinting. TOC recently spoke with the organizers about what attendees can expect from this year's revamped Printers' Ball. Read our preview here.
