Press For Sale: David Driesbach's custom-built intaglio press. ($4000 plus shipping from Villa Park, Illinois.) This press was assembled by Mike Bunch who has created presses for Tandem Press among others. The press has a 26 x 44 inch bed.  Built to run on household current the electric motor runs smoothly, the press has heavier than normal bearings and is geared to run slowly. Safety features include two safety-stops, and guards to prevent fingers going under the top roller. In spite of its size, this is a "table press." It is lighter than a unified press, and provides the opportunity to design a dual purpose storage area beneath the bed.

 In a World of My Own
 Printmaking Exchange 2014
 ASU Print Club
 Arkansas State University, Jonesboro

 “If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?”
 - Lewis Carroll, Adventures in Wonderland
The ASU Printmakers would like to invite you to participate in an open portfolio exchange. Based on Lewis Carroll quote, the theme is open to a wide range of interpretations. We encourage artists to explore the world(s) they are dreaming, wishing or living in, and illustrate social/political/cultural change(s) that would make the world a different place.
