Wayzgoose #13 – (Un)Lucky Tacoma

It’s that time of year again!
CLAW will be returning to the Tacoma Wayzgoose printing and letterpress festival at King’s Books, April 29-30th 2017.
On Saturday the 29th we have a booth, manned by Anique Zimmer, Jennevieve Schlemmer, and Steve Garvin, featuring official CLAW T-shirts and prints, original merchandise by our members, and fun activities to try!
The morning of Sunday, April 30th we will be doing steamroll prints of our Tacoma Hotel themed linocut.

Mark Monlux’s Robotic Overlords prints are making a return, along with the fun-sized version of James Stowe’s fantastic Flying Monkey print. They can be yours at $20 each!
Here is a sneak peek of them drying at Tinkertopia, courtesy of RR Anderson and Ms. Darcy, carved and printed by Anique Zimmer:

We hope to see you there!
