Year You Started with Letterpress
1977
How You Got Involved In Letterpress Printing

I grew up listening to tales from an uncle who'd worked as a stoneman and pressman for the local paper. Worked around letterpress guys as an editor at the student daily at the University of Montana. Began collecting equipment, developed a local job work trade and then started publishing the "Wapsipinicon Almanac" in 1988.
