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 words.
