Designer and Letterpress Printer Robert LoMascolo will speak at the Ward W. O'Hara Agricultural Museum, Auburn, New York on May 11th, from 2 to 4pm.

Robert will speak about the history of letterpress printing beginning with Gutenberg and ending with the current trends and his own work. He will talk about advances in both printing and typesetting technology, and how they have helped shape the world we know today. Through the Renaissance, Enlightenment, building of nations, and Industrial Revolutions, the printing press had a profound role.

Following the presentation, participants will have the unique opportunity to pull a real letterpress print on one of Robert’s antique presses!
