Jessica Spring's Profile

About

Springtide Press (http://www.springtidepress.com) proprietor Jessica Spring started setting cold type on a Compugraphic Editwriter 7300 phototypesetting machine (a huge console with a big green screen) in 1982 as an undergraduate English major, beginning a lifelong interest in typography. She learned to set real metal type in 1989 and has been a letterpress printer ever since. Collaborations are an important part of her work, either printing for other artists or teaching students traditional letterpress printing, typography and book arts. She has an MFA from Columbia College Chicago Center for Book & Paper.

Her ongoing collaboration with illustratornChandler O'Leary, the Dead Feminists, can be found at http://www.deadfeminists.com
