Thanks Kseniya. I had just posted an APA bundle piece to Neil Giroux, on which I quite ambiguously credited "Laddies" to you, since 1) I could not get specifics, 2) you and Jessica created Ladies of Letterpress, which led to Laddies. I shall of course credit Jake Massey for the term in future.
Aw, thank you! Still waiting for an email back about my offer. The press is at The Arm in Brooklyn, and they had that crazy snowstorm, so I think that's why it's taking so long. Not sure if they've re-opened. They don't have a phone number, either. So, yes, keep those fingers crossed.
Thank you soo much for your kind note about my book. It means so much to get positive feed back from people who are working in the field and making it happen! I was so pleased when I talked to Eileen and she told me how much you liked it. I'd love to sell you one of the edition.
I might also pick your brain in the near future about going abroad. My boyfriend and I are starting to think about post-graduation plans and time in Germany might be on the list.
Thanks for looking. The drawers look so pretty on the outside.....but horror of horrors....when I moved into my new studio, someone tipped one of my type cases on its side....everyone froze when we heard the sounds of cascading lead bits hitting the floor.
I'm loving the whole book. Initially I was incredibly resistant to letterpress, mostly just because I was overwhelmed by the intensity and meticulousness of it all. Ironically, I felt bookbinding was less stressful. But now I am fully embracing both and enjoying it.
Alabama is wonderful. Well, I should say the program is wonderful. The culture and climate take some getting used to :) Steve Miller and Anna Embree are amazing teachers and have been awesome to work closely with. My first year was really tough but it was amazing. I was really resistant to printing at first but I'm pretty sure I have to bug now.
Hello Kseniya!! I'm loving this site, so much great info. I've loved Letterpress for many years and thought of starting a small business several times. I finally decided to take the plunge and learn as much as I can.
Thanks for letting me know about those other presses in Utah. FYI there is a new letterpress studio that just opened up in Provo, UT called Rowley Press I'm hoping to take classes there within the next month. I'll let you all know how it goes in case any future Utah members want to know
