- Dear Folks,
At 530 Shanghai Alley -- probably Vancouver's most picturesque address --
there lives a hand papermaker named Reg Lissel. His phone number is
604-687-0132. Reg has made his own beater and his own press of wood, which
are among the books in his two-room apartment. I have ordered around 600
sheets for an edition of short stories by Ambrose Bierce, and Rollin Milroy
of Heavenly Monkey Press is ordering steadily from Reg.
Lissel's sheets have consistency, which of course we letterpress printers
I pass his name along to the group because he could use more sales, and of
course the Canadian dollar grovelling near the one American penny mark makes
purchases in Canada a bargain for my Yankee brethren and sestern. His prices
are good even without taking exchange into account.
Cheers, Michael Barnes
All the talk of laser engraving is interesting. I think I asked the question
around 6 weeks ago. It seems to have needed time to gain momentum -- now it
is a torrent !
