New letterpress type

We’ve been very grateful this week for the generosity of the friends of Levigator Press. We’ve had people bringing us paper, bookbinding materials, candy, their old phone books (print studio essentials!), a lovely pair of antique irons to use for bookbinding weights (thanks, Bev!). And tonight we drove out to the county to pick up a little cabinet of type from a barn, courtesy of our friend Julka. It’s left over from a Serbian language newspaper that used to be produced in the Ford City neighbourhood. We’ve barely had time to peek into the drawers yet, but we’re going to get a lot of good use out of this!
