Ink Stains

At left, a letterpress operation in Brisbane, 1921. Copyright-free image on wikicommons. Some of the aprons are ink stained.

I'm nostalgic for letterpress printing. It probably comes with the territory as I'm a longhand composer of prose.

There is something tactile about the act of pressing test.I feel that when i read the words, as well.

I know continuous print and computer typesetting reduces cost. I'd still like to have a book under my name with enough merit to have a few copied pressed.

Yea, I know. Write well and it can happen.

I'm writing well now. We'll see what the future brings.

Mind your fingers. You need them.
