How You Got Involved In Letterpress Printing
Fell in love with the process at an internship with Pyramid Atlantic, Center for Book Arts and Papermaking. Had just completed my BFA in fine art and did not pick up a single printmaking class–big whoops! Had so much fun on the Vandercook with linoleum cuts, type and monotype backgrounds. Also had started taking some book art related classes while at college, such as Experimental Offset, which really opened up the idea of making books to me.
