On Saturday I attended the 8th annual Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival in San Francisco.A truly festive, public approach to printmaking.  A three ton steamroller is driven over large three foot square carved and inked linoleum blocks.  The prints are a knockout.

If you would like to see how it’s done here’s a link:

Some very fine printmakers participated including Rik Olsen, Rigel Stuhmiller and Nora Aoyagi.
Other events at Roadworks included letterpress and bookmaking demonstrations, live music and vendors.
I purchased this print by a talented artist, Daniel Gonzalez.
Check out his other work here:

The event is hosted by the San Francisco Center for the Book.
