Pinyon Jay Press and Idaho State University invite artists to submit broadsides using hand set type for a national juried exhibition in the Transition Gallery in the Pond Student Union in Pocatello, Idaho. This exhibition will be juried by Jessica Spring.
Jessica Spring – Jessica Spring learned to set real metal type in 1989 and has been a letterpress printer ever since, most recently inventing Daredevil Furniture to help other printers set type in circles, curves and angles. Her work at Springtide Press—artist books, broadsides and ephemera—is included in collections around the country and abroad. She also collaborates on the Dead Feminists broadside series with illustrator Chandler O’Leary. Spring has an MFA from Columbia College and teaches letterpress printing and book arts.http://www.springtidepress.com

PINYON JAY PRESS:
The Pinyon Jay Press in Pocatello, Idaho, is a collaborative venture between the James Rogers Department of Communication, Media, and Persuasion and the Department of English and Philosophy. Housed in the VisComm Experimental Lab in the Liberal Arts Building of Idaho State University, it provides faculty and students the opportunity to learn the art of fine letterpress printing and to explore various forms of expression that involve image, text, or a combination of the two. Several times a year Pinyon Jay Press holds special events such as guest lectures and workshops to promote the knowledge of letterpress printing and related fields such as typography, book design, broadside production, and visual culture in general. The Advisory Board for Pinyon Jay Press currently consists of Naomi Adams, Kelly Crompton, Paula Jull, Roger Schmidt, and Curt Whitaker. (http://isu.edu/departments/
