SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY

The San Francisco Center for the Book’s 12th Annual Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival is a public printmaking and book arts extravaganza that includes free hands-on printmaking and book arts activities, demonstrations, 50 arts and crafts vendors and more.

Using an unlikely printing press created by using a 1924 seven-ton Buffalo Springfield steamroller provided by Roots of Motive Power as a giant cylinder and the surface of Rhode Island Street itself as the bed of the press, a team of featured artists and printers create large-scale prints from three-foot-square, hand-carved "Battleship linoleum". Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival is become a popular tradition in the Do.Re.Mi (DOgpatch-PotREro-Hill-MIssion) Arts District of San Francisco, that attracts art, printmaking and book art enthusiasts of all ages, including families and kids, from far and wide.
