    hi Angela,

    I’ve been waiting for an email to confirm the final number, you said that you were “emailing the recipients later tonight” last Wednesday. I never heard from you…I am ready to print but on a tight schedule since I leave Wednesday and  won’t be back until June 22…after your mail in date.  Is there anyway you can  tell me are you expecting me to participate and if so how many prints do I need? Thanks, Nancy Stock-Allen

    I was trying to revive the letterpress shop at my college at the same time the dean asked for an industrial safety expert to survey the college for hazards. The “expert” declared that the lead type was too dangerous for women of child-bearing age to handle and all of the type was removed by a extremely expensive hazardous waste removal company. I wasn’t allowed to take it for my own press because the college felt that if I fell ill they would be liable. Even though there has never been one documented case of anyone dying from using lead type the type was destroyed.

    I also had to agree to never take students to my studio where they would be exposed to lead type. At the same time there were at least 5 college/university level letterpress shops within 40 miles that functioned safely. There was no listening to proof or examples to change the mind of the administration. Once the industrial hazards people write a report about handling lead type you would think it was more dangerous than plutonium. I’ve been there and feel their pain. Good luck to them.

    Ps We were allowed to use wood type once the presses were “decontaminated.”
