A letterpress studio

I'm lately designing some business cards and I pulled out a few from the hundreds of favorites from my collection. There are some I designed in the past, among others that I just love. What about the Manifesto Letterpress card printed on a circle? This process, reminded me of the beautiful letterpress studio by wood engraver Jim Horton, that I used to use for my printing. Machines and type are everywhere in his house, remote in the woods of Michigan. My absolutely favorite spot, was one of his studio set up in the green house. And the ever challenging Gordon Oldstyle Press from 1870!

I have to say (from what I can see on the photos) that I really like the tag-style one with the coat hanger? Really cool. Hope your design comes out the way you want it and you'll share it once it's finished :-)

Yes, the one with the tag-style with the coat hanger is a very old one of my collection and a great one. I printed it at Lunalux in 1994, using their design. During my very first year and job in the USA!
