Clinker Press is a private letterpress shop started in 1996 and now located in Portland, Oregon. Proprietor Andre Chaves focuses on publishing material relating to the art of printing and to the Arts and Crafts Movement. Books and broadsides are produced in limited editions with cold and hot metal type (Ludlow and Intertype), and supplemented with polymer or magnesium plates for illustrations. Andre uses hand presses, platen and cylinder presses in his production process.
We are excited to share the print work of another local printer who is dedicated to the use and preservation of hot metal type casting. Join us at the C.C. Stern Type Foundry to hear about Andre’s books, inspirations, and process. This is an informal event, and all are welcome.
