SAVE BOWNE party and exhibition

April 25, 2011 § 1 Comment

Please join us on Thursday, May 5th at The Arm to show your support for Bowne & Co. and the Seaport District. Friends of Bowne is having a party and exhibition of books and ephemera printed at Bowne & Co., Stationers over the years. Barbara Henry and Robert Warner, former master printers at Bowne & Co., will be there, as well as former Bowne volunteers, friends of Bowne, friends of the Seaport District, members of Save Our Ships, and fans of letterpress printing and printing history. Festivities commence at 7pm.

Come ready to make your own print and get some ink on under your fingernails!

The Arm is a great letterpress studio in Williamsburg at 281 North 7th Street, between Havermeyer and Meeker Streets. Learn more about them here:  http://www.thearmnyc.com/
Many thanks to Dan Morris and Bryan Baker at The Arm for providing space, enthusiastic help, and press time. Coeur Noir, specialty printers in Williamsburg, graciously donated paper for our broadside.
