The Common Press
The Common Press is the letterpress printing studio at the University of Pennsylvania. It is supported by a collaboration of interests at Penn, including writing (15th Room Press, Kelly Writers House), print culture (the Rare Book & Manuscript Library), and visual arts and design (the School of Design). The Common Press was founded on January 17, 2006, the 300th anniversary of Benjamin Franklin's birth. The Common Press provides a mixed media environment to support the teaching of design and fine arts to students, to encourage collaboration on projects across the university, and to expose students to contemporary print culture

NOVEMBER 5, 2008
The evening began with an informal meet the artists (Paul Swenbeck, Triston Lowe, Andrew Jeffrey Wright) on a tour through the galleries of R. Crumb's Underground.
Following, Professor Matt Neff spoke about Swipe File, a new book by Charles Burns printed by Neff himself.
Finally, after grabbing cupcakes and coffee, members of the Common Press screenprinted on free Radical Art tote bags...
