Amos Paul Kennedy, Jr., letterpress printer and book artist, will be exhibiting his work at the Urbana [co][lab], 206 W. Main St., on Friday, April 25th, at 7 pm. His work features witty and often confrontational slogans that suit his bold and unabashed style of letterpress printing. Prints will be available for sale and Amos will be signing his work at the event.
Kennedy has recently completed a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund a printing plant in Detroit, relocating from his old print shop in Georgia, to become a fellow midwesterner. The show and signing is not to be missed!

Through his strong graphics and bold typography, Kennedy addresses passionately issues of race, freedom, and equality, often incorporating proverbs and tales of the Kuba and Yoruba people of Africa, as well as the work of African-American poets such as Paul Laurence Dunbar.
