Printmakers cut large -3 foot square- block prints which are pressed by a three ton steamroller. It's a fundraiser for the Center for the Book and takes place on the street just outside the Center.
Featured printmakers this year included Rik Olsen, Favianna Rodriguez, Mike Kimball, Caitlin Mattisson, and Anna Branning.
Here's the process:
