It’s impossible to talk about letterpress in Alabama without mentioning Mr. Amos Kennedy of Gordo, Alabama. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Kennedy at a demonstration he did at Auburn while his work was featured in the June Collins Smith museum. He brought one of his Vandercook Sp-15’s, and showed the students how type should be locked up, how the inking process works and let everyone run a print on the press. Mr. Kennedy’s work is for the most part driven by wood type, and he has an amazing talent for layering text, colors and shapes. Be sure to visit his website and watch the wonderful documentary about Mr. Kennedy, Proceed and be Bold!

Mr. Kennedy’s works have an incredible amount of layering

The work he does with reversed type is outstanding.
