10th Annual Roadworks Printing Festival

This last weekend we attended the 10th Annual Roadworks--a steamroller printing festival.

The event is a fundraiser for the San Francisco Center for the Book.

This year's steamroller was a classic.

Printmakers carve gigantoid block prints which are inked and then "pressed" with the steamroller right on the street.

Here are a few of the prints:

There are printmakers selling their works at booths on the street. 
You can also tour the Center and even play around with some of the presses.

Here's Kate printing a small piece.
