Dave Wofford of Horse & Buggy Press will talk briefly about aspects of collaborating with photographers on fine press books and share a few stories from a few of the many books on display in the exhibition.
Rob McDonald, photographer and writer from Lexington, Virginia will speak about his work as well as passing around prints. He and Dave will talk about their two collaborations, “Birdhouses” and “Poplar Forest,” both of which are hand-bound books featured in the exhibit and were produced with a mix of Indigo printing (images) and letterpress printing for the text.
Catharine Carter, photographer from Chapel Hill, will speak about her work. She and Dave will talk about their collaboration on the 112 page fine press book “Journey;” a sequence of photomontage imagery that is interspersed with short writings from Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung which inspired Catharine’s images. This just completed book features hand-sewn bindings, hand-printed letterpress covers, and a signed and numbered deluxe edition created with handmade paper covers and which is accompanied by a photographic print suitable for framing.
