I’ve been thinking about what it is I love about letterpress printing. If I’m not printing posters or cards or cleaning/buying type, I am reading about it.
For me, it’s the act of creation. And as much as I love playing around with Illustrator design on my computer, that isn’t where I want to spend my time. I love pulling a print off the press and seeing the ink against a white background tell its story. My walls are covered in words that matter to me.
So when I can’t do the work– like now while I am helping my husband recover from his surgery– I am planning the work.
David is coming along well, and it looks like I’ll be back in the shop in a few days. Can you see me doing my happy dance?
