PROCEED AND BE BOLD! A Documentary about Letterpress Printer, Amos Paul Kennedy

Dear Briar Press Community,

My name is Laura Zinger and I am almost done making a feature-length documentary about Letterpress printer, Amos Paul Kennedy Jr.

It will be completed and premiering in Chicago in May, 2008.

If you would like to find out more about this documentary and see the trailer, you can go here:

Amos has been incredibly inspiring to me, and I hope that some of you might find him inspiring too.

Good Printing!

Hi Laura,

I’ve just seen the You-tube trailer for this documetary, and am VERY interested in seeing this film for myself. Do you have any longer-term plans yet to bring this film or DVD to the UK ?




Will you post the date and place of the premier in Chicago? There may be some of us who could possibly arrange to take it in if not a private showing.


If you are interested in seeing this documentary in Chicago or otherwise, you can email me and I will give you more information!

I’m so glad to hear about your interest!

Ah the Bama. I had my first dance recital there.
