Welcome to Huskiana Press!

We are an experiential letterpress studio for students, faculty, and community members at Northeastern University. We are a project of the Northeastern English Department and directed by Ryan Cordell. Our equipment was gathered and refurbished by the wonderful folks at the Museum of Printing in Haverhill, Massachusetts.

Huskiana sponsors applied research in book history and creative projects by students and faculty, offers experiential workshops in the history of print technologies, teaches modules in classes across departments, and fosters a community of makers on campus. We are especially interested in experiments that blend historical and contemporary technologies, such as intersections between letterpress and 3D printing, and in creative projects that engage with the rich materiality of letterpress production.

If you are interested in a workshop, classroom session, or studio time at Huskiana, please email Prof. Cordell about what you have in mind. We are eager to work with faculty, individual students, clubs, and other organizations alike.
