Feel like I need 2-3 lifes
I remember first prints from old linocut cliché and how I was impressed. I was going to buy my first press (something like Krause). But I didn’t know how to print. With my friend we asked old printer Adolf Andreevich to show us processes. I was amazed. I didn’t expect that such simple tools can make so beautiful prints. Letterpress was a bit later but that was consequence of that first impression.
I studied social work and sociology in Moscow
There are many not one. As for my work — our clients and their projects. That’s great and endless process of learning.
Don’t want to have any super power. It’s too dangerous. I would like to have more time. Feel like I need 2-3 lifes — so many interesting this want to do. But I like my current life very much.
Mostly — alone. But sometimes it’s good to work with others for fun and when I can’t do a project alone.
They make me feel that the world is not so crazy as it seems.
When I do nothing or go nowhere, feel good, do yoga practice, walking with my family
Ha! I would like to be as good looking as Garamond but sure I would be and feel much better as any wood type from our studio
Actually I have no nightstand. At home I have time (a little bit) to watch series only. I read books mostly in metro (underground) on the way from home to studio. But in studio there are: “Gutenberg’s Apprentice” by Alix Christie in English and in Russian, “Johannes Gutenberg” by Albert Kapr (in Russian), “Bookbinding. Complete Guide to Folding, Sewing & Binding”, “Cyrillic Type Travel Book Commented / Type Review by Typejournal”. Our studio (Demon Press) is in the process of publishing Alix Christie’s novel in Russian. That the reason of my book list.
We (Demon Press) have Korrex Nurnberg, Korrex Stuttgart, Heidelberg T Platen, Krause, Adana 8×5 and Partisan Press (old soviet times proof press)
I’d like to do more workshops for people
When I do nothing or spend time with my wife and daughters. Where: at home, in studio, in Haapsalu, Vis island, Porbail and some other places.
When I don’t know why I’m worried
It’s useful to make my family and the people I work with feel good.
Demon Press is my day job
Yes, all techniques which are possible with our equipment and some more
