Bethany Taylor

Bethany Taylor was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee where she fell in love with letterpress. She studied fine craft at the Appalachian Center for Crafts in East Tennessee, then philosophy at St. John’s College in Santa Fe, New Mexico. While completing a Bachelor’s of Science at Belmont University in Nashville, she served an internship at the legendary letterpress show poster shop, Hatch Show Print. It turned into a dream job where she spent the next several years realizing that letterpress is where it’s at. During her tenure there, she began to carve linoleum and write children’s books for her kiddo, Felix. She studied other methods of fine printmaking in graduate school at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, and traveled the country a bit, eventually settling in Spokane, Washington a few years later with her little family. Not finding quite the letterpress scene needed, she started her own studio, Interpunct-Press, to generate custom work and fine art. She’s also a founding member of the Spokane Print and Publishing Center, a non-profit community print center offering education, equipment, and access to the print arts.
