Summer update: I’m restoring this babe of a press (10”x15” C&P) at Firecracker Press in St. Louis! Once restored, it’ll be moved to A new creative entrepreneur space/letterpress shop in Cape Girardeau, MO. The building the press came from was in a fire so the press is covered in soot and rust.

Basically: lots o’ grime.

Messy business, but getting a little shinier by the day!
