the future of print

Well, the future of printing in my studio. This is quite exciting news: tomorrow,

the Kelsey Press (5"x8") (pedigree: from Huron Press, Bruce Chandler) (for a description see http://excelsiorpress.org/kelsey.html )
meets the wood type (bought from John Barrett, http://www.letterpressthings.com/ ),
and combines with the Futura, Cheltenham old style, and Bookman,
with the super-amazing assistance from Wild Carrot Letterpress, Dan Keleher,

and printing begins in my studio! Pamphlets. Broadsides. Postcards. Christmas cards. Letterhead. Business cards.

All of these things, and more, but only if they are of a Very Frivolous Nature. For Earnest and Serious Printing needs, it would benefit all and sundry to look elsewhere.

Further frivolous printing can be seen at Quercus Press, the studio of the quite talented Johnny Carrera, who introduced me both to letterpress work and to the Red Sox. What a guy! Quercus Press is open on November 4, from noon to 5 pm.
