The Gutenberg Museum, Mainz, Germany
I went to visit my sister in Germany, as a close to my amazing Italian adventure, the one where I spent six weeks at the Scuola Internazionale di Graficia. And my sister kindly asked me what I hoped to do while visiting. Without missing a beat, I told her I wanted to visit Johannes Gutenberg’s birthplace, … Continue reading
PRESS is on the MOVE! Five years ago this summer I founded PRESS up the street from our current location as part of DownStreet Art, never imaging that I would still be here on Main Street printing with the Vandercook and sharing the magic of letterpress, five years later.

Ink in MY Blood
I’ve always loved ink and carving linoleum blocks. Even three visits to the emergency room, one that involved stitching the tendon in my thumb back together never got in the way of this love. Right now, managing PRESS, teaching and other work sometimes takes priority over nurturing that love of the knife against lino or … Continue reading
What a great opening!
What a fabulous night, one of those glorious Berkshire Summer days, not a cloud in the sky, warm enough to wear a sundress and be out in the streets, and why not at the August Downstreet Art opening!!
