Let the letterpress love-ins begin

It was wonderful to be among the presspeople last weekend at the Letterpress Printers Fair, and wonderful too to see the delight in people's eyes last month at Scripps Camp when workshop participants got their first glimpse of the effect of metal pressed into paper. Plus, with just one crank of the Vandercook you go from artisan typesetter to broadcaster.

I promised photos, and here they are of the project, a postcard that went from this /|\ (that's an up arrow, people)


with sayings on the opposite side (we even got to practice proofreading)

and here I am modeling the results of our efforts with other Scripps students of yore.
