Artist's Statement

I am firmly in the camp of designers who believe it’s our mission to visually underscore the text. While satisfaction can be found in the finished product, I find greater joy in the prepping that we letterpress printers call makeready and in the melding with my hand-cranked machine during the press run. But the real pay off? It’s that glimpse of raking light seen in the impression on each sheet just before it’s lifted off the press.
