Anna Hogan Wood Engraving show at the Museum of Printing

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

I bought this great little wood engraving print by Anna Hogan at this summer’s Letterpress Guild / Museum of Printing fair, and really loved a lot of her other work. (I literally ran out of cash, or I would have bought another print or two from her).

I was very glad to receive a beautiful invitation to the opening reception to a show of her work at the museum on October 23. You should try to catch her show [more info].

In genral, I’m really pleased to see how much stuff is going on at the Museum of Printing. Lots of good stuff happening there lately.

Rainey + The Rainy Planet

It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

The Rainy Planet Press has been more or less on hiatus for some time, because of a new Rainey in our life: Rainer Eli Wise Ball, born July 17.

Just five short days before he was born, we rallied some friends and moved the press from our digs at Joy Street Studios in Somerville to some more industrial space in Medford. We don’t get to take advantage of the open studios– not that we ever did– but we do get some cool new studio mates, it’s much closer to home, and it’s a heckofa lot cheaper.

Unfortunately, the newborn takes up a lot of time and we haven’t *quite* gotten the press all back in working order.

But! Look for that to change soon.
