"what if the book with all its wiles and daring were only mad resistance against the emptiness of the last page?" -edmond jabes
a few months ago i decided to treat myself to a letterpress printing class, which starts this weekend! i cannot tell you how excited i am to arrange type, to spread ink, to create text with a hand spun machine and paper. the simplicity and antiquity of it makes me giddy. i know a basic level of book binding and my dream is to one day create a book--text and all--by hand. how magical would that be?
in the spirit of my class, i will be back later this weekend to share some letterpress inspiration!
