Lest We Forget

I got it into my head that it would be a perfectly reasonable thing to print on two inch wide paper tape with the Golding Jobber № 8.

Paper tape turns out to be really sticky, and so its natural inclination is to stick to the type, and thus get sucked into the rollers. This is not a good thing. To prevent this, I printed each impression, quickly stopped the press before the danger of sucking was upon me, rolled out another few feet of tape, and repeated. It’s by no means a perfectly registered job, or even, really, a registered job at all.

But it kind of worked. And the result will appear in the vestibule of 100 Prince Street once it’s dry.
