As you know I’ve fallen in love with letterpress. I own my own small Adana press, a small amount of type and a photopolymer platemaker that allows me to make up my own printing plates. But I’m very limited in scope due to the size of the press. I was desperate to get my hands on some larger equipment to see if I liked it just as much.
This is where the fabulous Mr Richard Lawrence came in. This lovely gentleman lives in Oxford and through the St Bride Foundation I’d been able to set up 2 days with him in his workshop.
