  • Delightful Peter – Baskerville made significant change to titlepage design, and essentially, knowingly or not, we follow him today. And I enjoy his two ornaments, thanks to the Monotype copies of course! I’ve not seen him using any others. Many thanks.

  • One is Baskerville's Lucretius, printed in 1793, I don’t think so. Graham Graham Moss Incline Press 36 Bow Street Oldham OL1 1SJ England http://www.inclinepress.com news blog: http://www.inclinepress.wordpress.com

  • But nothing would solve this Jason, but new rollers. And no matter whether printing type or polymer, with your rollers the problem would remain; if they sag like that, then there is no ability to gain ‘proper adjustment’ of the rollers by any means. This is quite a different matter from the issue posited in the first posting - (I mean, in the UK we say that you have moved the...

  • Soft forme rollers? You must be joking! This might sound like a problem in theory Kevin, but it never has been in practise. I’d be amused to hear actual occurences of the other experience.

  • Exactly so – for my fussyness, that would potentially be three separate runs, and only experience determines how the printer approaches such a situation (or even allows such a forme to come into existence!) . But we are drifting away from the original issue! A straight polymer forme, like a straight type forme, is well-served by bearers of the same height as the job in the press...

  • A 3 x 5 Kelsey or Adana just doesn’t have enough impression strength for a newbie to work with – it’s not fair to encourage them! To sell one on is to be unfair to the buyer! Graham Moss Incline Press 36 Bow Street Oldham OL1 1SJ England http://www.inclinepress.com news blog: http://www.inclinepress.wordpress.com Graham is wrong on this one, I think. A free Kelsey 3x5 is...

  • I can confirm, for those who wondered, that in fact we do still use bulbs in Europe. Graham Moss Incline Press 36 Bow Street Oldham OL1 1SJ England http://www.inclinepress.com I was unable to get the same bulbs as the machine is from Europe

  • Trying to bid, the machinery tells me that you are unwilling to mail to the UK. Surely that can’t be right, so long as the USPS maintains desks in post offices! What’s the story? Graham Moss Incline Press 36 Bow Street Oldham OL1 1SJ England http://www.inclinepress.com

  • Aye, and there’s two communities, the makers and the buyers. To a large extent the makers can take care of themselves so far as process goes – that is if they have enough wit to find and open a few books, and maybe visit a few existing makers. It’s the buyers I think we need to be more concerned about, thus the value of the bibliophile clubs, the FPBA, the book Fairs, the...

  • If you produce letterpress pieces for sale and want to get some more exhibited, this seems like a good thing to try. I just bought a $30 space, which I'm hoping will turn out cheaper that giving the usual discount to a retailer. Of course I'll have to print a poster for sale to fill the space, but I'd be doing that anyway! > http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/weloveletterpress/we...
