Letterpress Shanty — Art Shanty Projects 2012

‘The Shantyquarian’ is the newspaper of the 2012 Art Shanty projects on Medicine Lake. As this video from Vimeo user strange puppy shows, ‘The Shantyquarian’ is printed on a carbon-less copy paper (ice shanty air temperatures don’t allow for the use of ink) using a letterpress.

You can make a contribution to the paper by tweeting with the hashtag #shantyQ, and if you want to see the typesetting and printing in action you can head over to the shanty on Medicine Lake. Hurry though — the Art Shanty projects will only be around this weekend and the next.
