Director's Cut of the 10th Annual Wayzgoose

This is just a backstage glance of the 10th annual Wayzgoose and Steamroller Smackdown at the School of Visual Concepts in Seattle this past weekend. It was a very festive atmosphere with music by the twin Canote Brothers, colorful costumes, bagpipers, a bicycle-powered juice bar, swap meet, printing and a marketplace of books and ephemera for sale. Far more photos, people and posters can be seen on the Letterpress at SVC Flickrstream, including the winning entry from Modern Dog which you can see here. They got points for technical difficulty with the stencil registration. See the actual awards here.
This year's keepsake was designed by master wood engraver, Carl Montford. Carl and his printers' devils assisted guests with printing their own personal copy on the school's iron hand press.

Hanging in the print studio was this Characters from the Wood Engraver's Network poster, courtesy of Carl Montford.
