I'm an American printer who will be in Paris for most of this summer. I'm wondering if anyone's got information about whether there's anything going on with letterpress in France. I'm up for meeting printers, visiting presses, checking out classes or art centers or museums or really anything related to printing, anywhere in France.
Also feel free to PM me if you know of resources that are tangentially related--I'm into book arts in general, hand papermaking, woodcuts, etc.
If it matters I speak/read passable French, just without enough sophistication to have tracked down any resources via the Google!
