My purpose for taking this particular session was a desire to get beyond my habitual use of type and photo generated line art and expand into more colorful and nuanced image making to use in book…Continue

I took my first workshop last fall in Northern VA and was hooked. Followed that up with some individual workshops at the Visual Arts Center in Richmond. I hadn't planned on buying a press yet, but a small Morgan Line O'Scribe was available, and I've had great fun learning to ink and set type the past few weeks. I bought a Boxcar base, too, so I could work with plates.
It's not easy doing one print at a time, as I have to reset the pressure each time (it's an adjustable roller) and…Continue

I am writing a book about the role of letter presses and printers in anarchist communities from the Paris Commune to the present. By "anarchist" I mean both those who identify themselves as anarchists and those who may use other terms but are friendly toward an anti-capitalist politics that builds communities and nurtures autonomy. I have discovered a number of women printers in the classical anarchist communities (1880s-1940s). I've also found that printers were central to these…Continue
I have three presses for sale that are in amazing condition all have new rollers and have been recently used.
The Heidelberg Windmill is $4000. Included is a single phase converter so you can run it from your basement or garage without needing to find a space with 3-phase electricity. This converter was quite an investment for me. The rollers are new and it comes with many accessories.
The 8x12 Chandler & Price is $2000. It has new rollers and a variable speed…Continue
