We had a most quiet group on Saturday, and very nice class led by Mindy Belloff. Everyone was very focused and engaged, and had a great time typesetting and being on press.  Elegant stationery!

In the Letterpress workshop, Jamie, Joyce and Viv each hand set metal type and printed a set of personal note cards.  They also each created a poetry broadside edition.  Wonderful work!

Letterpress Consults, Lectures, Visits

It’s been a busy Spring & Summer.  Mindy Belloff was invited to Rich Turnbull’s History of the Book class at FIT to talk about her fine artist’s books.

Priscilla came into NYC from Brazil for a private consult, as did Macarena and her daughter from Argentina.  Both were wonderful meetings and tutorials on the clamshell press, as the unique craft of letterpress printing spreads to Latin America.

We had a fun time at the Westover School in CT, setting up the new print shop with demo and talk and printing Shakespeare broadsides with the students and teachers.
