Best wishes for the New Year 2017!

Such are the sentiments of this tricky bit of letterpress printing and die cutting featuring a movable lunar volvelle.

Recent Commission . . .

This was a fun commission. I reproduced a spiral bound hand-written family cookbook so everyone in the family could have a copy! These were a bit of an upgrade with cloth spines, foil stamped title, ribbon bookmark and plastic laminated hard covers featuring images from inside the book.

It is that time of year again!

Please join Diego, Kari and me at Copperesque on December 18th. I am bringing an antique press, and we will be letterpress printing ornaments.

Printing an ornament is fun, easy, and great for all ages. This year I have two new ornament designs set up and ready to go. This is also a great opportunity to come out to visit our local artists Kari and Diego after their recent move to the other side of the lake. Kari has her new paintings on display along with a wide selection of handmade gifts, and Diego’s new Taughannock Falls stereo book is simply phenomenal.

I hope to see you there!

Copperesque is now located at 27 West Main Street, Trumansburg, New York
and open from 10-6 for December only.
