Representing the Denver letterpress community, Jason Wedekind has just advised me that they have elected not to host the Wayzgoose next year. At this point we still have an offer on the table from Mark Barbour to stage it at the International Printing Museum. It’s good to get to each coast now and then, but the midwest is America’s letterpress center of gravity, and gathering there will facilitate the maximum attendance.
Personally, I think Printers Hall in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, is about as perfect a venue and location as we could ask for. There’s also a lot of letterpress happening in and around Madison, Wisconsin, including the huge shop Ky & Sara have put together in a big old former furniture store. Do we get to see that one of these years, hint hint?
So the window of opportunity is open, folks. Whither shall we convene next summer?
Jeffery Shepherd is our newest APA member #925.
