The Printer’s Devil












The Printer’s Devil is the term generally used for the young assistant to the printer. A new trio of letterpress prints uses imagery found in a 1908 Stempel Type Foundry catalog featuring a literal depiction of a Printer’s Devil. The source artwork was originally made as a printer’s ornament that was a couple inches wide. The image was scanned, touched-up and then laser cut into a wood block. Two additional wood blocks were partially laser and hand cut and then hand printed by Richard Kegler in three variations at the P22 studio in Rochester from late 2020 to early 2021.
