Felt & Wire Love

On St. Patrick’s Day, the San Francisco Center for the Book hosted a Ladies of Letterpress event featuring the organization’s co-founders, Jessica White and Kseniya Thomas. Jessica and Kseniya met many Bay area printers, spoke about the growing online LofL community and promoted the first ever LofL conference coming up this summer in Asheville, North Carolina.

As a member of LofL, some of my print work was included in a member show that same evening:

Offset and perforated identity system

Many thanks to Alyson Kuhn, literary mistress of Felt & Wire, for including my work in her article.

Fine Press Printing Demystified

Here are some photos I took during a two-day class I took at the San Francisco Center for the Book last weekend. The class was taught by Peter Thomas, who hauled not only boxes of fine press books and cases of type, but also his ukelele which he played at the close of the class!
