The Leeds Print Festival has got very close, very quick and I have been getting a lot of things ready for the print sale on Saturday 28th January 2012. I am also involved in the opening event on the evening before and am preparing for that also.
And of course that means doing things (and making mistakes) that are unique to letterpress, no CTRL+Z here!
Notice the pile of pied type in the last image. Bugger! It’ll take ages to sort that lot out again! I wouldn’t mind but I wasn’t using that fount – I just spilled it!
I have also cut a big (A3-ish) lino block which already had a number of prints run before I cut it into smaller pieces out of frustration!
This will be one of my bookbinding projects for the Friday evening – if all goes well!
I still have some books left to bind, and one or two covers to attach, as well as a lot of packaging, but I am getting a bit excited now! Sorry for going on about this, but there you go!
