It’s the end of the text.

Well, it’s done. Not the complete book, but the text for WELLS & SONNE, my sabbatical letterpress project is printed.  (And thanks to all the interns who went the extra mile with me. Please see their names on the blog.) Binding is next, then printing the art and tipping it onto the bound up pages. The complete art program, six illustrations that are three and four flat colors, will take between 1,600 and 2,000 hand pulled impressions. It should be easier than the text pages to print, because each color is on a separate plate and fewer things can go wrong on one plate than on a page that has 2,700 movable pieces.
