We have added some great finds to our type collection in the past few weeks! We recently visited the home studio of one of the proprietors of Morgan Press, a small press in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and purchased some of their type and ornaments:
We’re still sorting out the cabinet full of type that came from The Voice of Canadian Serbs, a community newspaper that was once produced on Drouillard Road here in Windsor. This is a fun one, and we have quite a lot of it:
Today we had a group from the University of Windsor’s Leddy Library in the studio for a group letterpress session in which they designed and printed a collaborative broadside. Everyone had a blast and they made some great posters!
This is a fun class we’ve done quite a few times now with different groups. If you have a group of friends or colleagues who would love a fun, creative outing together, give the studio a ring and we’ll be happy to help you make it happen!
