Pinyon Jay Press


The Pinyon Jay Press in Pocatello, Idaho, is a collaborative venture between the James Rogers Department of Communication, Media, and Persuasion and the Department of English and Philosophy. Housed in the VisComm Experimental Lab in the Liberal Arts Building of Idaho State University, it provides faculty and students the opportunity to learn the art of fine letterpress printing and to explore various forms of expression that involve image, text, or a combination of the two. Several times a year Pinyon Jay Press holds special events such as guest lectures and workshops to promote the knowledge of letterpress printing and related fields such as typography, book design, broadside production, and visual culture in general.

The Advisory Board for Pinyon Jay Press meets twice a semester and currently consists of Naomi Adams, Kelly Crompton, Paula Jull, Roger Schmidt, and Curt Whitaker.
