Creative Mornings is a free lecture series for the creative community. This month, Crispin Elsted of Barbarian Press speaks about “Commitment”.
Crispin Elsted is a Canadian poet and publisher of handcrafted and printed books. He is the cofounder, with his wife Jan, of the book-publishing company Barbarian Press located on a remote farm in Mission BC. They hand set type and print woodblocks on presses that date back as far as 1850.
Elsted has also performed as a Shakespearean actor in repertory theatres and has composed, arranged and performed jazz and classical music. In his Vancouver upbringing he was a bear minder at the Stanley Park Zoo as well as a writer at CBC!
As proud local partners of Creative Mornings for the month of May, the Crafted Vancouver team will be on hand to give a short presentation about the festival.
