Leeds Print Festival pops up this weekend
Fancy a go at screenprinting this weekend? Aaron Skipper and Amber Smith, the duo that organised January's inaugural Leeds Print Festival, are hosting a Pop Up Print event at Leeds' Mexico exhibition space tomorrow and Sunday…
Pop Up Print will open its doors between 10am and 4pm tomorrow and Sunday and entry is free to all. However, purchasing a £5 print ticket on the day will allow you to get involved and actually produce an edition of screenprints to take away at the end of the session and go home with limited edition Pop Up Print keepsakes.
There will also be a small exhibition of prints with the Leeds Print Festival charity prints produced by Music, The Beautiful Meme, Anthony Burrill and Generation Press available to buy.
Plus, on Saturday bookbinder Alex Pritchard will be demonstrating his craft and on Sunday Bradford-based The Print Project will be demonstrating how to set type and print using their Adana press.

CR in Print
The July issue of Creative Review features a piece exploring the past and future of the dingbat. Plus a look at the potential of paper electronics and printed apps, how a new generation of documentary filmmakers is making use of the web, current logo trends, a review of MoMA New York's group show on art and type, thoughts on how design may help save Greece and much more. Also, in Monograph this month we showcase a host of rejected design work put together by two Kingston students.
