The Press at Colorado College: the Pressroom as Classroom
Curated by Betty Bright

August 26 to October 15, 2004
Museum Hours: Monday to Friday, 9 to 12, 1 to 5

Pressrooms have always been classrooms. From Gutenberg's day to our
own, young women and men have hovered closely around rhythmically
throbbing presses, the only place they could hope to learn the secrets
of the so-called black art of letterpress printing. Students of the
liberal arts, however, have not traditionally been among the adepts of
the black art. Until modern times, indeed, a liberal education was one
that freed its students from manual arts, not one that included them.
Only in the twentieth century did printing education move out of the
world of apprentice training and into courses for designers, writers,
and artists. Even today very few liberal arts colleges offer courses or
practical experience in printing. For the length of Jim Trissel's
career and since, however, the outstanding exception has been the Press
at Colorado College, one of the nation's premier fine presses and a
classroom for a generation of CC students. This exhibit and the
accompanying catalog celebrate that fruitful, creative space, Jim
Trissel's classroom. Paul F. Gehl
