Danni over at oh, hello friend dedicated an entire week of blogging to letterpress printers and studios. She was nice enough to do a little write up about Cleanwash Letterpress. My plan was to wait until my studio was spotless and organized to take and post photos. Then letterpress week came up, and I stopped kidding myself. Here it is, as clean as it gets…
My 1913 12×18 Chandler & Price (we were both born in Cleveland, OH):
I cannot even begin to express what a challenge this speed control was in the beginning (luckily I worked with an amazing electrician):
The perfectly colored challenge paper cutter:
Lifesaver of a platemaker:
Imposing stone/galley/ furniture cabinet (I am convinced that this is the most beautiful one ever made):
My giant work table and fabric covered corner:
I am sure that most of you don’t know this, but blogging is time consuming. Very. Taking, editing and color correcting photos then trying to write something that isn’t completely stupid to accompany them is no small task… I need to get better. I should have posted photos of my shop weeks ago, but I have yet to find the time to take them.
Bruce Schimmel came by for a visit and took this photo of me with my new best friend: a Heidelberg Windmill. She is a fine piece of machinery. You can also see my platemaker, and boring paper shelf in the picture. I promise I will show you the rest soon.
Don’t mind my face, or hair, or posture; boy do I hate having my photo taken.
To be continued…
