Bio

Studied fine art printmaking at art school and fell in love with letterpress and the book arts. I am not a designer and I prefer to work with wood and metal type as well as vintage cuts. Someone told me I am what is called a “craft printer”. I’m not so interested in printing for others or taking on printingjobs. I like to spend time and do my own thing.Yes, I do a lot of make ready!
