Letterpress 1

My Letterpress class is being conducted by Sara Langworthy.
Finally, I am able to understand Letterpress and Printing and not be intimidated my metal type! It slows down your mind and your hands, and you gain a superb understanding of the type, its history, the page and the text - or atleast, you should!
I wish we'd had a course like this while I was in Srishti, but its better late than never, I guess.

One of our assignments was to print a word and its definition. I picked F.H.B. - Family Hold Back.
