The Printers’ Ball is coming back to the future! Join thousands of readers, writers, and artists from around the planet for the greatest literary party in the galaxy—a one-night supernova of books, magazines, and otherworldly ink on paper, distributed freely; live music, readings, and other performances; letterpress, papermaking, and bookbinding demonstrations; plus even more. Free and open to everyone!
This year’s theme is TIME WARP!—time present, time past, and time future, contained for one stellar night of literary enterprise—and it all happens in Columbia College Chicago’s historic Ludington Building in downtown Chicago. Formal attire is not required; costumes are encouraged. The first guests will enjoy:
Commencement by ’80s icon Max Headroom
A free commemorative poster, created by Jeremiah Chiu of Plural (for the first 150 preregistered guests at printersball2012.eventbrite.com)
A free Silver Tongue Reading Series tote bag—get it airbrushed! (for the first 100 guests)
