The Printing Press in Our Garage....

A new project and a new incentive. Leo has set up his printing press in the garage along with rows and draws and shelves and mountains of typefaces and letterblocks. Yesterday we learnt how to set up the press and print and by golly was it nice to create an image using wooden letters, to feel the bite on the press as you pull it down to print and then to lift up the newsprint away from the blocks and feel the tacky wetness of the ink.
Computers. An afterthought in comparison.

Manipulated after scanning. Computers are helpful I guess.
