I'll get to this soon - finally getting back to the dark arts after a decade and more.
The 10x15 OS C&P and Vandercook "Universal I" have been badly abused in a friend's damp cellar for some years. Lots of cleaning to do, but serendipity has brought a Model 219 (#15219) and a lovely little 8x12 OS C&P, and soon a Washington-style (Morgan & Wilcox). Must be something about a warehouse that attracts the stuff.
Excuse the quality of our "first impression" just wanted to get some ink on something, so it's pretty wobbly 'lock-up' ;-)
For now, any Irish printers, typographers on the list?
I'll be in Tullamore on Thursday this and through the weekend, Dublin on Monday, London (but too busy to visit) Tues & Weds next and back in Ireland Thurs & Friday next, then back to Chicago
All the best
PS I'm cross-posting also to the ATypI members list, who may be interested in the Letterpress Printers of the World ;-)
