Dropped of some prints for sunday & ended up hanging out at press with @kokojuce & @kwohtations. βœ¨πŸ’›βœ¨ this beautiful print has a ton of typefaces. it is actually a paper specimen for the former eastern corporation (1880’s to 2004). #repost @kokojuce with @get_repost
・・・
if this print goes missing @mmvk is the first person we’re gonna ask about it. she’s being flanked by two of her prints on the walls too! #letterpressfinds #vintageprints

Last open press of the spring semester! ✨🌸✨ snuck in at the end to put away some type & print one project. i decided to try to expand on the concept from the “press on” print. the first one that easily came to mind was a knitting version. still brainstorming more, any suggestions? πŸ‘‰πŸ» swipe to the flipped image of the woodtype, just cause i remembered which app did that. 😜

Prints are in the mail, so i can post it. ✨🀩✨ inspiration from a 6 year old author, whose lovely mom, @shortcakescraps, posted her work in progress (swipe to see.)

Quick shot from organizing some of my type. βœ¨πŸ•βœ¨ page & co. serif woodtype on the left, & @hamiltonwoodtype san serif on the right. both in the @letterpressthings’ traditional pizza box, cause how else should i store type under my bed? 😜

On yesterday’s mini adventure with @wskorupski, i saw my first massachusetts owl! βœ¨πŸ¦‰βœ¨ a barred owl that i foolishly followed around & talked at. as you can tell, he was unimpressed. (action video in my stories!)

✨throwback thursday special guest edition!✨ happy birthday to one of my faves, @coreyschreppel! πŸ»πŸŽ‚ 🚴🏻‍♂️ seven year’s ago, @honeyws & i helped celebrate his wedding to the amazing @danielleschreppel. πŸΎπŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ•ΊπŸ» fun fact: this is also where i discovered letterpress, cause while i explored the city, i by chance stumbled into the @mnbookarts & met my first woodtype & presses.🀩😍 i was “doomed” after that.

I also put one idea on the back burner & started the process on a new idea. βœ¨πŸ€”βœ¨ i’m starting with the type, but i have some size parameters to consider, so i’ve got to do some more planning.
