26,000 handset characters

The Summer Internship is nearly over. Thanks to Sarah, Hector and Lucy, 26,000 characters and 28 pages have been editioned. If I’m lucky, the text printing will be complete near the end of October. Derek and I are working on illustrations.

Work on Wells & Sonne

This fall I am on sabbatical and with the help of interns am editioning an 80-page, illustrated, letterpress hand-printed book. This summer we have already set over 34,000 handset typographic characters and we are not half way through the book. The text will require 3,200 hand pulled impressions on my Vandercook and the art another 2,200 impressions. I am looking for a bound book release day in late December. (Phew!)
