ATF attracts both professionals and hobbyists from the US and Europe who wish to preserve and further the historic equipment and craft of casting metal type. This year the conference included excursions to The Museum of Printing in North Andover, MA, The Frank Romano Library, and Firefly Press in Allston, MA.

Experience the historic craft of letterpress printing! You will have the opportunity to print on a real antique press and choose from two all-occasion card designs. At the end of the workshop you will have 12 beautiful letterpress printed cards to take home and use! Letterpress has been around since the time of Gutenberg, but nearly vanished until its recent revival. See first hand what makes letterpress so special, and the results impossible to duplicate by any other process.
