By far and away the youngest and most enthusiastic patron of my letterpress pursuits is 6-year-old Roisin. She visited Type in the Open on Saturday night with her mother, camera in hand, and spent 15 minutes taking pictures while I attended to the typographic needs of others.
When I looked up they were gone. and it wasn’t until I got the photos by email yesterday that I got to see letterpress through Roisin’s eyes, and to find out that not only is she an enthusiastic patron, she’s also a talented photographer.
See all her photos here (and even more here), but here’s a sample of my favourites:
You have an amazing collection Peter. I will bring in some more type from our home collection.
Roisin has a great eye for photography.
