Year You Started with Letterpress
1980
How You Got Involved In Letterpress Printing
My father had an Albion press in his study. He would print the occasional piece. While still Children myself and my sisters helped create a small booklet of children's parodies. I kept working with him on other projects and eventually the press became A & J Morris, Portobello. After some years (I went to University, moved, and so on) my father passed the Albion on to others who could use it. Earlier this year, 2017, my wife bought me a C + M Caxton 4 x 6 table top press. With new rollers, some type and some practice I am printing small things for my own enjoyment.
