Letterpress: My first print

B's first letterpress print

I’ve just returned from my first lesson in letterpress at Leicester Print Workshop

And I’m so excited I’ve temporarily abandoned another post I was writing purely to share the above with you!

    Thanks Sarah!

    Early days, but enjoyed my first baby step! :)

  3. What a lovely little poem :) And it just seems so authentic and rich because of it’s physical medium.

      It’s actually a line from a Stephen Fretwell song – Bad Bad Me, Bad Bad You

      I also love the next line (I’ll let you have a listen to enjoy it as it was intended!)

    Beautiful. Well done. Using original type to create something new is like nothing else (and totally addictive, as you have probably realised).
    PS- Don’t get drawn into all that naff polymer plate stuff, its got none of the soul!

    • makedospend says:

      Thankyou! I can already feel how addictive it could get – I’ve got to wait a whole week til I can have another go!

      I’m not sure what polymer plates are at the moment… but I’ll try and remember your advice for when I do :)
