For the love of letterpress

A great article came out on Step Inside Design magazine, with the title For the love of Letterpress. A friend of mine Leslie Evans of Sea Dog Press is feature in the article, along with Katie Harper and Karen Battles of B Design. Leslie will present her work at Surtex, for the first time this year. As we are both getting ready for the shows in May, I enjoyed reading: Letterpress is like that. It involves multiple senses and thus connects us more closely with both process and results. We touch the type, the paper, the plate; we smell the ink; we feel the impression; we see the three-dimensionality. And we strive for that just-right “kiss” impression that affirms our love of this timeless craft.

Some beautiful prints, illustration and wood engraving by Leslie Evans are in display here below.
