Whatever. Gender’s a drag. You know what is the opposite of a drag? Letterpress printing. I have run a similarly-sized Chandler and Price press as shown here, but she’s so fast. And that lightning-quick throw-off lever! Damn, girl. 

People who really know how to use machines, particularly machines that can make wonderful things, like printing presses, are some of my favorite people.

Timelapse video by: merrickanderson. It’s more fun to operate this Chandler and Price press with two people. One cranks the wheel (we jerry-rigged it with a pull rope since we don’t have a treadle) and the other person feeds the paper.

We made a little over 150 Valentines Day cards, and had a blast doing it. I want this to be my job. I want to own a Chandler and Price press.

A thing of beauty :)

My friend Kevin walks viewers through his Bellingham print shop for CSPAN, showing his craft and the sturdy, historical presses that make it possible: “As the world becomes more virtual, i think there’s a swing in the other direction, balancing it out a bit, where people want to have some tangible connection.” He and Carly’s work at Bison Bookbinding is thoughtful & exquisite, and I’m honored to have friends that use their hands and hearts to create things of beauty.

"When your buying something that’s made with so much intention, it has more presence…”

Amen to that!

中に入った途端、ずらっっと活字が並んだ棚があり、テンション上がりました。職人さんは 棚のどこに何の文字があるのか全部頭に入っていて、活字を拾うのは凄いスピード!

私も必死に自分の名前を探し、自分で文選したその活字、プレゼントしていただきました(*^^*)

お忙しい中、ありがとうございました。機械を動かして実演しながら一つ一つ細かくお話していただき、勉強になりました。本当に楽しかったです。

Not sure what it says exactly but wow-look at all that type!
