Event description

Description

A Show of Hands’ celebrates one of printing’s most famous visual icons: the printer’s fist. The exhibition, curated by Tim Jollands, who runs Bath Spa University's Michael Turner Albion Press Room, features more than 90 posters, books and related ephemera from letterpress printers from across the UK, most of which have been produced especially for this exhibition.

Each item offers a unique interpretation of the printer’s fist – humorous, colourful, playful, serious, thoughtful, or surprising.

Our launch event, on Monday 18th November, will feature talks from Graham Moss of Incline Press, and Dr Holly James-Maddocks and Professor Helen Smith of the University of York, as well as a chance to view Thin Ice Press and create a souvenir print.

17.30 Welcome from Tim Jollands, followed by Talks from Graham Moss, Holly James-Maddocks and Helen Smith

18.30-20.00 Exhibition view, and Thin Ice Press open studio
