The Printed Word
What is a broadside? Broadsides
are poster-like prints, where text, or text with image, are printed on
a single page. Its historic uses have been expanded in contemporary art
practices & artists’ collaborations with poets. Artist, Mindy
Belloff at Intima Press, will create an edition of your text printed letterpress
on archival printmaking paper, in the 15th-century tradition of letterpress.
Your words will be printed on our vintage Vandercook Uni III press, which
renders beautiful impressions of your words.
What is Letterpress?
The beginning of printing movable type on a printing press dates back
to the 15th century and is credited to Johann Gutenberg, who created the
first printed Bible in the 1450’s. Letterpress printing now, more
than 500 years later, still produces the most readable, elegant text,
as 3-dimensional type or a relief plate is pressed into a high quality
paper. With the commonality of computers, we forget the origins of type
faces and fonts originally drawn by a scribe, cut and cast one letter
at a time, with each letter set by hand, proofed, inked, and printed on
a press. At Intima Press, we honor the labor and elegance
of past traditions and print each design by hand, with the greatest care
and attention to detail in this unique process. Our designs are a union
of art historical traditions and modern design. Artist, Mindy
Belloff has been making art for over 25 years and printing letterpress
for over a decade. She brings a high aesthetic and discriminating eye
to her artwork and will design a broadside to reflect the beauty of your
