Print of the Week – Letterpress prints from Power and Light Press

Kyle Durrie is the proprietor of Power and Light Press, and an all around cool lady. Besides making these awesome letterpressed cards and prints, all of which make me chuckle, she also runs Movable Type, cross country adventures in printing. She’s the lady in charge of the Type Truck, a mobile print studio that she created by turning a 1982 Chevy step van into a fully functional letterpress print shop. Check her blog to see if she’s bringing her awesome mobile print shop to your area anytime soon*, it’s not to be missed.

*For those of you in Los Angeles, the Type Truck will be hosting an event at Poketo this Monday, October 29th called “Type or Treat!” It sounds like it’s going to be amazing:  besides simply witnessing the art of letterpress printing via Moveable Type’s Letterpress truck, there will also be free limited-edition prints and Halloween masks using artwork from artists Kate Bingaman Burt, Michael Hsiung and Kim West. There is also talk of free donuts. RSVP here.
