8th annual letterpress festival sponsored by San Francisco Center for the Book

The San Francisco Center for the Book’s annual Roadworks Street Fair is a day-long arts festival showcasing printmaking and the art of the book. Using a three-ton construction steamroller and an unlikely letterpress bed- the street- a team of artists and printers print large-scale linoleum carved block prints. In addition to the steamroller printing centerpiece, there are artists vendors, and organizations presenting an assortment of fine and affordable wares. In 2010, Roadworks attracted more than 5,000 attendees.

The festival will be held on Rhode Island Street between 16th & 17th Streets with a steamroller press, letterpress demos, art sales, food vendors, and more. Free tours of the Austin/Burch Gallery and studios plus free letterpress, bookbinding, and other mini-workshops will be offered at SFCB during the festival.

The gallery-quality 3 foot by 3 foot steamroller prints will be for sale at SFCB at 6pm with a reception featuring music and drinks.
