a typecast tour

we took a tour of my letterpress teacher's studio today, and i think it's safe to say the entire class was smitten. so many beautiful, beautiful machines and a really cool space. (i think i could have spent hours in there just taking pictures.) we got to test out one of her platen presses (which she affectionately calls "big boy") and print some coasters. and while you fear for your fingers the first time you give it a whirl, it actually ends up being a lot of fun. and much easier than the vandercooks we use in dolphin press. if only we had had something like that to help us with all of our registration issues on the previous projects...
