Amos P. Kennedy, Jr. is a printer, book artist, and papermaker, who is best known for creating brilliantly-colored letterpress prints that express social and political commentary. Using hand presses, he produces large editions of typographically-driven posters on inexpensive chipboard stock, often layered with many vibrant colors of ink. His bold and challenging prints have been collected by libraries, and he has taught workshops throughout the US, South America, and Europe. In 2009, the feature-length documentary film Proceed and Be Bold, focused on his life and work. In 2015, he was honored as a United States Artists Glasgow Fellow in Crafts.
