Letterpress

I started taking a letterpress class a couple weeks ago. It's something I've always wanted to do. The classes are at the Center for Book Arts in Manhattan. We've been working with handset metal type on the Vandercook presses the past two classes. I started with something really simple -- 72 pt. Futura bold type printed with Day-Glo yellow rubber ink.

I love this! I'm a friend of Won's from when we lived in Boston. I've always wanted to try letterpress, how fun!
