Say Yes to Letterpress!
Took part in: 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017
In 2007, I attended a workshop with Alex Barbaix in his beautiful place.
I was looking for a beautiful print technique for the birth announcement of my daughter, but couldn’t find a printer in the Netherlands who did letterpress with embossing.
In 2009, I bought my own Adana in England to do my wedding invitation and I started watching Youtube video’s.
Alex Barbaix – and the printers who work for me
Flying, like in my dreams
Depends on the project
A sense of humour
All the time, ideas never stop
I would rather come back as a printing press, not just a typeface
I would love to make special books with designer Irma Boom and create impossible things.
3 Adana’s (1950s), proofpress Lettergieterij Amsterdam (1910), trapdegel The Diadem (1910), trapdegel Lettergieterij Amsterdam (1910), trapdegel Deutsche Buchdruck Masch. Gesch. MBH Berlin National 1 (1900), trapdegel Tetterode (1890), woodtypes, foilpress (1960) and old and new paper cutters.
The size, it is too small (70 m2)
In my studio with some salsa music, ink and wooden type
To lose my eyes or hands
We make birth announcements and wedding invitations. I hope I can make a lot of people happy with our designs and cards.
