Moveable Type Truck

We are so excited to announce that the Moveable Type Truck is coming to Broadway Paper! On Tuesday, September 6th the truck will be pulling up right outside of the store. We'll be hosting the Truck in the afternoon and I'm pretty sure there will be some of Milwaukee's finest food trucks on hand too (trying to keep with the truck theme)!
You might be wondering what exactly is the Moveable Type Truck? The truck is a converted a 1982 Chevy van turned into a fully functional letterpress print shop. Inside of this 1982 converted van is built-in cabinets and workspace, a sign press from the mid 20th century, and an 1873 Golding Official No. 3 tabletop platen press. It's pretty serious!

The Moveable Type Truck is on a nine month tour around North America and we are lucky enough to have made the cut! Check out what the Truck has been up to right here. Please come celebrate the timeless art of letterpress with us!

The Truck will be here on Tuesday, September 6th from around noon until 3 or so. The event is free and open to the public! Check out our Facebook invitation here! See you there!
