investigating letterpress

this fall i started dabbling in letterpress at work, and i had the chance to visit wolverine press in ann arbor. it is such a magical space! the beautiful type and old machinery everywhere had my senses in overload and i was super inspired to make. not just letterpress design, but make in general.

i love the history of this art form. the organization. i even like how there are so many tools with names, and how long the process of setting type takes. i usually like projects with quick outcomes, but there is something meditative about this process that i'm looking forward to exploring more of.
