  • Thank you, Gerald. I saw this notice on Letpress the other day and ordered a set, if only to keep Greg and that caster busy and to let P22 know that there's a market out there for new metal type. I often have occasion to come up with a nice gift, so my plan is to design a border or background for these, print up some note cards, and, as the occasion arises, add the giftee's initial...

  • I've been using this characteristic to advantage lately. I use the Boxcar adhesive to secure 16-gauge copper plates to a Boxcar base, which I had ground to 0.850" (0.850" + 0.064" plate + 0.004" adhesive = 0.918") To remove larger plates, I loosen the edges with a steel pottery sculpting tool and then dribble some solvent around the perimeter with an eyedropper (I use Coleman's...

  • Just reminding you that this coming Saturday, May 4, Gerald Lange of The Bieler Press will be at Otis College of Art and Design speaking on the topic, "The Photopolymer Plate Process & Refined Typography on the Letterpress Printed Page." The hands-on demonstration has sold out, but there's still space for the 7 pm lecture, which is free and open to the public. Gerald is producing...

  • Since our leader here is apparently too modest to post this announcement himself, I, as a representative of the American Printing History Association, will do it: On Saturday, May 4, Gerald Lange of The Bieler Press will be at Otis College of Art and Design speaking on the topic, "The Photopolymer Plate Process & Refined Typography on the Letterpress Printed Page." A lecture at 7...

  • And for those of us with less experience, the concomitant advice is to order way more paper than you think you'll need.

  • Difficult question indeed. I'll have a booth at the Los Angeles Printers Fair this year, mostly to pass on type that I'm culling from my collection but also to distribute some of the prints I've created because "I had to." How to price them? Too high and someone who really appreciates and wants a print might need to walk away. Too low and not only will my print be devalued, but it...

  • Thanks, Ian, and thanks, Gerald, for passing that on. I want to take the opportunity to mention that I have discovered a browser extension that has made reading articles online much more pleasurable for me. It can be found at readability.com. The extension removes all clutter from the web page and reformats the article -- adjusting the line length, adding ample leading, and using a...

  • Thank you very much, Steve. I think this is the film I'm going to show my friends when they wonder what exactly it is that I do.
