A Letterpress Daytrip

Last weekend, Justin Knopp of Typoretum very kindly invited fellow book artist Louise Best and myself to collect a piece of equipment from his home and workshop in the Essex countryside – which was an excellent excuse for us to visit his (awe-inspiring) letterpress workshop and have a natter about all things printy.

An hour or so later, and with a spring in our step (and a bag of leather offcuts under my arm) we travelled to Louise’s studio, also in Essex, for an impromptu blow-the-cobwebs-from-the-Adana session (mainly due to Louise’s lesson earlier in the week at Harrington & Squires.)

Needless to say, a lot of fun was had rummaging through boxes and trying out the old copper blocks that had a story all of their own.

Many thanks to both Justin & Louise for their hospitality, and not forgetting the infamous Mrs Otvos, of Class 3L.

  1. That’s my ‘dream’ face. I loved it…
    Ah Mrs Otvos, where are you now…?
