Next stop: Salt Lake City, where I was thrilled to visit The Mandate Press! Ben Webster and his crew have a totally legit operation going on in a beautiful and enormous airplane hangar-like space. We had a great turnout that night, and we collaborated on a two-part poster – much fun was had. Thanks for an awesome time, guys!
I met David Wolske, creative director of the Book Arts program and Red Butte Press at University of Utah. The next day, I headed up the hill to campus and he showed me around the print shop. It’s a phenomenal collection, and Red Butte Press publishes some gorgeous books.
I left SLC and headed west on I-80, into some of the loneliest stretch of highway I’ve ever seen. It was magic. The highway passes south of the Salt Lake (the Great one!) and through the Bonneville salt flats – such a beautiful and desolate landscape. This might have been one of the best days of driving on this whole trip. Photos:
