Really would like a bigger proof press…
Took part in: 2017
My first contact with letterpress printing was in the Verkehrsmuseum in Berlín during a visit with my school class. I think I were about 8 years old.
Mostly learning by doing, talking to printers, old manuals and internet.
A arm with “Printing Press Power” would be practical. 🙂
It think it is always more interesting and inspiring to enjoy printing with others, but printing alone is more concentrated and meditative, which for some projects suits better.
To enjoy sharing together experiences.
Garamond would be nice.
The Book of Books from Mathieu Lommen.
Jenson, the time when the Antiqua typefaces were developed seems to me an amazing transition in history.
Right now we only work with completely manual presses. We have 2 Boston platen presses and a Sofadi Showcardpress for posters. Some other small proof presses and a mixed collection of wooden and lead type from different countries, mostly Spain, Germany and Italy.
We really would like a bigger proof press like a Korrex or similar to do poster printing more easily.
