Strathmore has contacted me about their new paper Pure Cotton Letterpress and I've invited them over here. They will llkely provide samples and the like. Wait for it.
I remember in the 1980s when Strathmore picked up on the Fine Print phenomenon and came out with Mohawk Letterpress Text. Printed a book or two with it. Was a pretty good paper. Very sad to see it go. The 90s were a bit of a decline. Let's not let that happen again.
