The New Incunable Print Shop combines traditional and cutting-edge processes with creative collaboration, and is the culmination of the Affective Digital Histories print project.
This co-produced exhibition, run in partnership by Phoenix and artist collective Juneau Projects, features 3D printed woodblocks designed by members of the public at free drop-in workshops held at venues across the Cultural Quarter in September and October 2014.
A working print shop, the exhibition is named after one of the earliest forms of printed material – the incunable –and echoes the small scale industries for which the Cultural Quarter was known.
The New Incunable Print Shop invites you to design your own woodblock then use it, and other blocks produced as part of the project, to create original prints.
Throughout the exhibition, a unique collection of prints and posters will grow recording events around the Cultural Quarter and further afield.
If you’d like The New Incunable Print Shop to create a one-off design for your event, submit your order online via newincunable.co.uk – you’ll receive a digital file of the design, which may also be displayed in the exhibition. There is no charge for this service.
The New Incunable Print Shop is open from 6-29 November at Lightbox Studios, LCB Depot, from 12-5.30pm on Tuesdays – Saturdays.
We’re also opening on Sunday 16 November from 3.30-9.30pm to coincide with the Light the Night festival.
