learning letterpress

i'm excited to be attending a one-day letterpress workshop tomorrow at the book arts institute. i've been wanting to do this for months, but timing, cost, and location never seemed to work. and then days after making a resolution to myself, i landed on the book arts website. perfect!

it's a part of the international printing museum, which also sounds fantastic, and located just south of los angeles.

this is a great next step with one of those "new projects" that i mentioned. i'm hoping to share some fun stationery and paper designs soon...

p.s. check out my photo of a Heidelberg letterpress being pushed down the middle of a street in san francisco. crazy! and one of my favorite memories of last weekend.
