Letterpress


I'm taking a bookmaking class this semester at the graduate level, and so far, I love it. This is a poem I wrote about a nightmare. This is just a first proof of the poem. I love letterpress. I love the process of putting the tiny letters into the holder and wrapping the string around the type to keep it in place. I love inking up the letters and printing onto the paper. I'm so excited everytime I go to class. Betsy davids showed us some handmade books and I think that I will have to take more classes on bookmaking in teh future. There is too much to learn in one semester.
