I went walking with a friend today, telling her about the print shop I happened to stop into yesterday. They do all commercial work on offset presses these days–

But I asked if they had any old letterpress equipment. (I’m always on the lookout for a new press.) They had a huge Kluge, way too big for me. But they also had type. Cabinets and cases of type.

My friend asked if seeing it made my heart beat a little faster. “Yes,” I laughed.

“Then you know it’s a passion, don’t you?” she said.

I can’t stop thinking about it. And I’m wondering…well, let’s just say I have a few ideas to run by them.
