Join us for an evening with Chris Fritton, aka The Itinerant Printer, as he tells stories and shares work from his epic cross-country journey in printmaking.

Three years, 137 shops, 47,000 miles, and 15,000+ prints later, Fritton returned home to document the experience. The resulting 320-page tome comprises a series of independent yet interconnected vignettes celebrating the people, places, and prints from the road. Part travel diary, part cultural anthropology, part philosophical musing, and part poetic digression, The Itinerant Printer upholds a time-honored tradition in the recorded history of tramp printing.
