Re: [PPLetterpress] Workshops in Aurora, New York
- Wow. This looks like quite a non-traditional party ;-)
Not to be a stick-in-the-mud, but I'm left wondering if there's any typography going on out there at all...
And whether the essential character of the imprinted letter and understanding of essential technique is lost completely in the search for expression?
With best wishes, in fact, because it really does look like a fun time!
