I’m Amos Kennedy & I love to print. I live in Detroit, Michigan, where I want to build a community of people who have the skills to print and share their stories, preserve their histories, and do something good for the other communities they are members of.
This is why I am restoring a building, called the Pile of Bricks!
THE PILE OF BRICKS will be a place where people can come and print, learn to print, and teach each other how to print.
It will not be a school, but an international community printshop that will allow people to explore poster printing via letterpress & wood type.
This building will house my imprint, KennedyPrints!, and The Printing Plant, the Printery of the Americas, a 501c3 letterpress educational institution, which will foster and promote letterpress printing to a wider audience, and pass on the skills needed to be a Letterpress Printer.
Located on the east side of Detroit, Michigan, The Pile of Bricks will be a welcome home to inspiring ink slingers who want to PRINT POSTERS.
