Just returned from an amazing weekend of complete letterpress immersion! I spent last week in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, where we had the third Ladies of Letterpress conference: the Type on the Cob wayzgoose. It was three days full of printing and printing-related workshops and presentations, including typecasting, cutting wood type, wood engraving, and a screening of Linotype: The Film. Here I am sitting on the Miehle press with Kseniya Thomas, my partner-in-crime in the daily workings of Ladies of Letterpress, and our gracious hosts at Printer's Hall at Midwest Old Threshers, Rick Von Holdt, Jim Daggs, and Steve Alt.
