A table fit for a printer

One serendipitous day, I found a teetering stack of letterpress job cases in front of one of the local antique and furniture shops at unbelievably low prices. Most of the time, these trays go for anywhere between 30 and 50 dollars, depending on size and condition. But I snagged some large Hamilton-brand California job cases for 18 bucks. Quite a find!…

Letterpress in Taiwan

I recently visited Taiwan to visit family, and I had a chance to learn more about the state of letterpress printing in Taiwan. Apparently it's not undergoing a revival as it is here in the US, and is in danger of disappearing altogether. I first visited MBMore, a printmaking and letterpress gallery and…

It's been awhile

I know, but this summer I am trying to keep up with all of these internet things I started.

I can't even get around to leaving the house today. 

But I have a site where you can see the postcards I have been printing as part of the Keep Writing Project. I wil be adding more this weekend maybe even with a tutorial of how to make an instant book.  Maybe.

If I don't go visit a friend on Avery Island…

Spam-tastrophe

LOLP was hacked earlier today, and the robot filled the site with drug ads. I'm really sorry--it is increasingly hard to keep fake people off the site, but we're doing our best to stay on top of it. I hate when this happens, and will keep trying to make this the last time.

Lead Graffiti / Kickstarter / 23 posters in 23 days

My husband, Ray, and I have an interesting Kickstarter project that looks like it's going to fly. I'd like to let everyone know about it and hopefully get some involvement from the "Ladies of Letterpress".

During the summer when Ray was the coordinator of the Visual Communications Group at the University of Delaware, he and I would take two dozen design students to London for five weeks of design visits as well as a couple of short breaks for personal travel.

We've liked the…

Dear Printers: I implore you to be careful!

We all know we do dangerous work, especially those of us with platens: we all know, at some level, that one false move and our hands are mush. At the same time, it's so easy to almost trust these machines and think of them as friends, since they help us make beautiful things and help us…
