Spending these cold spring days carving out summer in the deep woods.🍃 Im making a book as part of a grant I received to work with Jim Horton, a master wood engraver. It’s a big project, but all the research and thinking and drawing are out of the way... looking forward to warmer days, proofing and printing.
HELP!💥 Since I use all hand set type (like this manicule), I can’t print the normal social media symbols. Does this make sense to you? Would it make sense to your friends and fam who use social media but sort of get confused? Please advise. 👉❤️👈 #letterpress #printerproblems

You know that feeling when you go to a thrift store and find the perfect thing that you really don’t think you should own? Multiply that by two tons and you’ll know how I felt when I found my big press and first load of type. Luckily, I have a mother who gives great advice. 😘 @leeannfromwv
In the beginning, this was the press in question... The world of visual art that I had found in college was disenchanting. I had no interest in making work to display in galleries, and was dead set on farming full time. I worked a farmers market with a lady who owned this press, and she told me I should buy it from her. I don’t remember really wanting it, but I liked her, and figured I could have some little side project. I didn’t even know what a letterpress looked like, but I went and picked it up after market. . . . . #letterpress #pilotpress #printing #printisntdead #printmaker #womanartists #historicalprocess
Hi! I’ve had an epiphany. So much of this questionable whim-wham involves communication... so I should communicate better! So, first off, let me introduce myself. I’m Sarah Brown, owner, printer, and mastermind of Questionable Press. . . . #letterpress #woodengraving #writemorletters #snailmailrevolution #sendmoremail #snailmail #writemoreletters #stationeryaddict #printspotter #printisntdead #printmaker #womanartists
Winning the bitty baby type award today! Since all the letters are backward, if you set it upside down, it reads left to right... can you read it?
