Full of vig and vigour after Saturday’s trip to the Wayzgoose, and with a newly-cast piece of type, fresh from the Gaspereau Ludlow type-casting machine, burning a lead hole in my pocket, I resolved to start Monday printing instead of coding today. And with my mind still somewhat muddled from long road-trip, I got all experimental.
That last one is not experimental at all – it’s Crane Lettra paper. But who knew you could use a letterpress to print on rubber gloves, paper bags, and paper towel. Printing on the shiny-new cover stock of the Globe and Mail newspaper was especially pleasurable: it’s a luscious medium for ink.
