A print collective led by artists Daniel Duford and Tracy Schlapp — Cumbersome Multiples collaborates with artists and writers to create limited-edition multiples. The 1928 C&P clamshell press and a Line-O-Scribe proofing press, a cabinet of movable type and block prints are at the heart of these collaborative projects. The history of the printing press begins with the dissemination of ideas. Presses have been the hub of a community. Using this antiquated printing technology invites human-scale making which energizes the Cumbersome studio site. Collaboration begins in the studio with the role of lead artist switching based on the particular needs of the project. From there it radiates and evolves to attract more collaborators.
