I went to this event in Minneapolis at the Walker Art Center while I was home recently. 

I thought it was a cool collaboration because letterpress printing usually does not happen in a modern art museum. Craft and contemporary art may attract different audiences. Because most of the magic of letterpress printing happens behind the scenes, it can be a fairly opaque process. 

Here, printer Jenni Undis of Lunalux is setting some of the poems that were read at the event in type, and printing small editions of them on a tiny press. Lunalux prepared for the evening by printing the name of the event on the back of each card and numbering them before printing. They also have "live" printing events at their own shop sometimes. 

Here photo corners are being used instead of gauge pins.
