Another Letterpress Course

Posted on: 08/07/2012

I did another letterpress course yesterday, this time at the Thames Barrier Print Studio where I am a key holder. They have four Adana’s, we learnt how to type set the traditional way which was challenging but fun. I really enjoyed using the wooden type, especially as it is easier to clean at the end of the day!

This is the layout of my type in the ‘chase’

And the end result – the Adana also works very well on delicate papers, I printed this on tissue
