The Shantyquarian, Volume 2, Issue 2, published January 22, 2012

Shantyquarian 2-2 Sunday 1-22

All issues of The Shantyquarian were printed on a sign press in an ice shanty on Medicine Lake, MN. They were set in moveable type and printed daily during the 2012 Art Shanty Projects in the Letterpress Shanty. 

All content was sourced from Twitter (selected from tweets tagged with #shantyQ), from the Letterpress Shanty online form, from messages in bottles submerged beneath the ice by visitors to The Shanty of Wonder, or from paper forms made available to artists and the public in the Letterpress Shanty.

This issue was scanned at The Minnesota Center for Book Arts and uploaded to for PDF hosting.
