Project Description


I am the proud owner of an 1890 Lightning Jobber letterpress and several other small table-top presses. I am enamoured by both lead and wood type and the traditional old ways of setting type and creating books, cards and pamphlets.

Selecting and placing each and every letter, setting out the spacing, locking up the chase, inking up the plate and the rollers and getting into the rhythm of printing is a joy and an adventure.
