INK-A! PRESS

Inge Bruggeman has been making and publishing fine press artist's books under her imprint INK-A! Press since 1992. In addition you will find related art work by Inge including prints, print-objects and other mixed media works.

You can read articles about my work on Betty Bright's blog (just scroll to 6/17/09) AND in Fine Books Magazine.

Please inquire about an on-line catalog for Fresh Impressions, an exhibition on contemporary letterpress printing that I organized and co-curated at the Hoffman Gallery in 2008.

Special announcement! I am teaching for the 2011/2012 academic year in the Graduate Program for Book & Paper Arts in the Interdisciplinary Arts Department at Columbia College Chicago. I am on leave from my regular institution, the Oregon College of Art & Craft .

Here are a few pictures from a recent solo exhibition in the Collins Gallery at the downtown library in Portland.
