I'd Rather Be Printing

PRESENTED ON MAY 13, 2015
IN NEW ORLEANS @ VOL 17

"This is the first color newspaper ever printed in New Orleans!"

In I'd Rather Be Printing from Pechakucha Night New Orleans Vol. 17, J.S. Makkos shares falling in love with antique printing presses as a youth exploring in his father’s antique shop. This helped define his passion for print making. He came down to New Orleans with a purpose to salvage the detritus and material culture of this city that was being lost in dumpsters and through a sequence of events, stumbled on a treasure trove of New Orleans history.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Monday, October 5th, 2015.
