Walking Bird Press

I’m spending some time in Flatrock with my friend and artist extraordinaire, Tara Bryan. We are working on a little art book together, to be titled Wesleyville. This morning, I set type for the first time, and really enjoyed it- a bit like playing word games

I got some basic instructions on how to operate the Vandercook press, and made a first proof. There were lots of typos to fix. Another word game.

Once we got the type set correctly, however, we started to play with layout. Perhaps the type will be reset to form around the shapes of our images…
