Dispatches from Pittsburgh: Artnoose

A Guest Post by Jenn Pascoe.

Pittsburgh is home to many achievements (like it’s own funicular!), one you may not be so aware of is a strong letterpress community. One of the more esteemed members of that community is Artnoose. After getting her start in the Bay Area, she has been letterpress printing her zine, Kerbloom!, for over 15 years (that means she’s been making quality zines longer than Rebecca Black has been on Earth).

As with many other printmakers Artnoose also offers her printing services and expertise for special events, but clearly she makes time for personally creative projects, too!

Artnoose resides at Cyberpunk Apocalypse, a writers collective, for the past few years — you can see some flyers she printed for events there (below) — She is hoping to begin a sister print-house nearby that would work with visiting and resident writers on new projects.
