Workhorse Printmakers is a full service letterpress print shop proud to call Houston, Texas home. We use environmentally friendly soy based inks when possible.
Our Banned Books event with Brazos Bookstore is featured in the first issue of Under Consideration’s UC Quarterly. If you haven’t seen it yet it’s filled with page after page of the best from their Quipsologies and FPO blogs. We’re honored to be included.
By the time you read this Cite Magazine issue 91- Spring 2013 will be hitting the shelves of your favorite independent bookstore. The illustration for this was done by our own John Earles and the covers were printed here at Workhorse two color on French Poptone Spearmint. Pick one up!
On September 22, we’re partnering with Brazos Bookstore to present Banned Books Week. Join us from 12 to 3pm at Brazos Bookstore where we’ll be printing event posters live! Letterpress-printed broadsides featuring quotes from infamous banned books, such as Nabokov’s Lolita and D. H. Lawrence’s Women in Love will be for sale. Our foil stamper will also be on site to emblazon each purchased broadside with a print edition number.
We would like to thank AIGA Houston for sponsoring this event.
