backtracking: first lesson

not only did the kind mr. patrick hogan sell me his beloved letterpress and goodies, he also drove to my home and gave me a one-on-one, hands on tutorial! sure, i didn't learn everything there is to know about letterpress in one day, but i got my feet wet and printed for the first time! he went through the basics of measuring type, quads and spaces, how to set type and create a forme, make-ready, registration, how to pull a print, how to ink up, clean up, and more. it was information overload in only a few hours, but interesting and fun. after he left, i successfully removed the chase, handset type, and pulled my very first print completely on my own. it was exhilarating! i am hooked!

handset type thank you letterpress cards, 1st pull
