It's up and posted!
I can't tell you enough how excited I am about this feature!

Emma approached me about a Lovely Lady spot shortly after I printed our first project together. (Check out her business cards here)  Soon after, it turned into a studio tour complete with all the construction mayhem. My initial reaction: "A video? At my place? But there are people hammering and making all kinds of noise upstairs." Somehow, the story folded in all together- the house, my dog , the press and my story.

Wade Koch  pulled out all the stops with his camera and endured hours of editing to get this just right. His eye and his storytelling through a lens is amazing.  

Thank you Emma Robertson for making this happen!! And all this time you were just down the same street!

Sit back and take an intimate look into my studio...

Behind the Scenes: Boxcar Press

Boxcar Press is the authority in the letterpress world as printers and as suppliers to smaller press shops. In this video, you can see the hands-on care that goes into every print. Boxcar is a huge operation on the east coast with all the machinery to make letterpressing a breeze with multiple fully-automated, windmill Heidelbergs, plate-making machines, heavy duty cutters and the man power.

For now, this video is inspiring showing endless possiblities in a single print. Maybe I should start shopping for a faster machine to give my single-sheet fed Vandercook a break. Something to daydream about.
