Bathroom Redo :: Hooks

I first wrote about our bathroom redo a long time ago and tonight was the first night I actually got to step into that shower! We worked with a lot of artisanals and you can’t really give these folks deadlines. The bathroom door was custom, left nude then painted our choice color--it only took about three months to get that one done.

Letterpress Basics: Time to Print

This is the fourth in a series of posts speaking about the basics of letterpress. I started off with how to use a composure stick, next working with metal type and then on to moving your composition from galley to chase ready for print. There are a lot of visuals taken from my own hands-on experience learning the basics of letterpress in Paris with Thomas Gravemaker some years back. This is an overview and would suggest anyone interested in the craft to take on a workshop for more in-depth knowledge. So without further ado, it’s time to print!
