My New Best Friend: Alexander!

This past November I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time, and the amazing Carl Montford had a 5x8 Craftsmen Table-Top Platen press for sale! Having been wanting a real press for quite some time, I jumped on the offer. It didn't need a lot of mechanical work, but it did need a lot of de-rusting TLC. John and I were up for the challenge.

& Coasters: Now at Pike Street Press!

Yesterday I dropped off a few bundles of my ampersand coasters at the recently opened Pike Street Press (underneath Pike Place Market in Downtown Seattle). They have an awesome gallery space where they're selling local letterpress printers' work, as well as a huge Heidelberg press in the back, where they do custom jobs. Such a great space for letterpress!

The coasters are packaged in bundles of 4, for $10 each. I dropped off five sets of the regular coasters, and one set of just the 'ampersand,' as well as one set with just the type. Hope they do well!
