Recent Commission . . .

 

Claire Morehouse told me she wanted to write a book, and here it is! I designed the book using her text and photos and bound one hundred copies. The book is over 140 pages, all printed in color on nice cream paper and even has a foldout map! If you are interested in getting a copy, Claire is offering them through the Village Market (https://innsofaurora.com/food-wine/village-market/) in Aurora, New York.

Recent Commission . . .

 

"Story of the Bible" before and after rebinding. 


New press. . . .

 

 

The new Kelsey press is looking much better after the rust was removed. I may repaint it, but it is usable now!

This 1836 edition of "Robinson Crusoe" was printed locally in Ithaca, New York!

New press. . . .


Several of you have asked how I fix up my old presses. This little press was extremely rusty on the bottom from spending decades on a damp cement floor. So, it is taking a bath in Evapo-Rust, my favorite rust remover. I will let it sit in the Evapo-Rust for a few days before doing anything else.

New press!


Thank you to Trudy for giving me her father's old printing press! He used it in his auto repair business to print invoices, envelopes &c. It is very rusty, but I will be working to bring it back to life.
