Bravo bravo ;-)
I am so happy to see letterpress/book arts collectives popping up east
of the Rockies!
The Dubuque Book Arts Center (under construction) salutes you!!
We don't do hot metal, although we (sadly) just had to pass on a whole
shop full of ludlow stuff (near Minneapolis - we'll get the Heidelberg
and the Miehle V45. Just couldn't manage the whole shebang)
Our good friend and fellow traveler Tim Fay down in Anamosa produces
his annual Wapsipinicon Almanac directly from Linotype metal (set and
cast in his shop). (On a 20x26 two-color Miller Cylinder, no less).
Highly recommended both for the type and the content, which is top-
drawer... so to speak. There's a brand new issue out this week!
BTW, Tim's also a photopolymer user, just to stay on topic
