Slow Printing in a Digital World
Mark Smith and Kathleen Walkup in Conversation

In partnership with Hinterland.

In 2017, the town of Kells inherited a mothballed printing works in which lurked some rare and precious 19th century offset machines. They are now at the centre of The Printworks (a Mark Smith project) where 21st century types (pun intended) will come to learn and love 19th century technology. Mark will be joined onstage by Dr. Kathleen A. Walkup, Professor in Book Art at Mills College, Oakland, and an occasional blogger at New Irish Journal.
