Thursdays are printing days here at PRESS and this past Thursday was my first time using the Vandercook! Jonas came in to help me (and practice his teaching skills for an upcoming workshop).

Type Nerds Rejoice!
Today was an exciting day up here in Rochester! My school, RIT, has an absolutely fabulous graphic arts library, the Cary Collection. In January, the collection welcomed a major acquisition in the form of what is now known as the Kelmscott-Albion press, dating back to 1891. An Albion press is an early hand press used primarily … Continue reading
