Tom Killion's Woodcut Prints of the California Landscape:
Adapting Japanese Techniques to Letterpress Printing
Tom Killion

Saturday, March 26, 2005
7:30 p.m.
Humanities Auditorium, Scripps College

The Goudy Lecture is free and open to the public

Tom Killion has been developing his blend of Japanese-style woodcut
printmaking and letterpress printing since he studied book arts at UC Santa Cruz
in the early 1970s. He has produced five illustrated books of his own work,
two of which have been reissued as trade editions, and over 400 edition prints,
most of which depict California landscapes. Tom has taught book arts classes
at Mills College and the San Francisco Center for the Book, and has
shown his work in numerous exhibitions in the United States and Europe.
He also has taught African History and California Studies at Bowdoin College,
Asmara University, San Francisco State University and Stanford University.
His most recent book, “The High Sierra of California," involved a collaboration
with poet Gary Snyder and received widespread acclaim when it was published
as a trade edition in 2002. Tom currently lives in Inverness, California,
but also maintains a studio in Santa Cruz, his home of many years.

Frederic W. Goudy Workshop

Making Japanese-Style Woodcuts on the Letterpress
Tom Killion

Saturday and Sunday, March 26 & 27, 2005
9:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Scripps College Press
Cost: $160 plus $15 for materials

This two-day workshop will provide a hands-on introduction
to Killion's methods of blending Japanese-style woodcut printmaking techniques
and letterpress printing using oil-based inks.
On the first day Tom will introduce students to Japanese carving tools
and their use, and students will spend the day carving a wood
or linoleum “key" block. At the end of the day the key block image
will be transferred to a second “color" block, which students can begin to carve
as well. The second day will be devoted to printing a two-color image
from students' blocks, using the key block registration technique
on Vandercook proof presses. Blocks, most tools, inks and Japanese papers
will be provided. Students are encouraged to bring a 5 x 7 inch design
for a relatively simple 2-color image.


You can reserve a place for the workshop or dinner
by sending a check by March 18 to:

Scripps College Press
