Re-activation

Due to the fact that I continue to get a surprising number of views and comments despite how amazingly little I have written in this blog, I am going to make a concerted effort to write more. Consider yourself warned.

Museum of Printing’s Third Print Arts Fair

Wednesday, May 24th, 2006

The Museum of Printing in North Andover Massachusetts is having its third Print Arts Fair on June 18, 2006.

Here are some reports from last year’s fair. (Note that this year’s sheep shearing exhibition does not coincide with the print fair.)

Letterpress Things

Wednesday, May 24th, 2006

If you’re interested in letterpress and live within driving distance of Western Massachusetts, you’re lucky to live within range of Letterpress Things. In the recent postcard giving the dates from May-August, proprietor John Barret mentioned that he’s working on a blog. If you’re reading this, John, I highly encourage it. It’d be an ideal way to get the word out of what’s new.
If you’ve never been there, John has cases and cases of type, cuts, presses, type cases, books, various other supplies and necessary items. If you need rollers or other parts or have various particular questions, if John doesn’t have the answers, he can probably put you in touch with someone who does. You can also pick up recent copies of The Printer, free samples from AAPA bundles, and other occasional goodies.
