Meet The Type Truck, the Mobile Printing Press on a Cross-Country Tour

Although she's not in a band, and her musical talent is an open question, Kyle Durrie of Power and Light Press has embarked on a cross-country tour. Durrie — who is based in Portland and is the proprietor of a smashing Etsy store — has turned a 1982 Chevy Step Van into a mobile print shop, set up for letterpress demonstrations and workshops, and she's headed our way.

She'll be stopping in at the Curiosity Shoppe at 825 Valencia from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, as part of its “Sunshine” Letterpress Show. Then she's off to San Francisco Center for the Book from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday for some demonstrations.

SFWeekly caught up with Durrie somewhere between Portland and San Francisco, to talk tire-changing, road-trip music, and old-school printing.
