i heart letterpress!


I had the pleasure of taking a two day letter press class this past weekend at montserrat college of art in beverly, ma…..and i LOVE it. This could be  a very expensive process to love, but I can’t help it.  My birthday is less then a month away…anyone want to buy me a press? a studio to put this press in? Any takers? Anybody? What I want to learn next is the polymer plate process so I can press some of my own graphics!

the  full plate of “text” printed on 140lb watercolor paper.

then I printed sections of the plate on note cards & craft envelopes.

greeting card!

they had a pretty good assortment of large wood type that I used to spell out travel….printed a bunch of these on pages from a road atlas. hopefully soon some of these will transform into journal covers.
