Year You Started with Letterpress
2016
How You Got Involved In Letterpress Printing
I was raised between paper and ink, my family used to own a big print shop with offset printing machines and a couple of presses. I can remember how I used to fall asleep by the sounds produced in the shop. I'm a graphic designer and I realised that all I want to do in life is to print like there was no tomorrow, so I took a flight to San Francisco (CA) and spent some time learning the letterpress process and techniques in the San Francisco Center For The Book and now I finally received my first press.
