biggest news is that we had photos of two invitations I printed in Martha
Stewart Weddings Fall 2004 issue on pages 210 & 213.
big news: I'm going to have photos of two our invites in an article on Letterpress
printing in the next issue of Martha Stewart Weddings slated to hit the newstands
Oct. 4th. We should have a little blurb in the "resource" section
in the back.
a great time at the American Typecasting Fellowship in Terra Alta, West Virginia.
Here's a few pictures from the event. Basically, its a bunch of "metal
heads" getting together talking about type.

have decided not to rent the new building after all, but have moved across
town. My phone number is the same. I also have a PO Box now: PO Box 503

updated the website slightly, changing my email address that has been
bouncing back to clients. Spam email has been taking up precious storage
space! Arrgghh. I've taken some steps to remedy this and will be taking
more soon. My email address firstname.lastname@example.org
will still work, but email@example.com
is a little more reliable.
have been accepted to Monotype University at Rich Hopkin's place in West
Virginia and will be taking a week off August 10-17 to learn how to use
the Thompson typecasting machine. My Koike is basically an improved Thompson.
Not much else is happening with the Koike because I'm trying to survive
like the rest of us; printing keeps me busy; and, I need to get a 3-phase
power converter purchased and hooked up to the Koike.
just called the freight company about the Koike
and it looks like it made it on the boat and should hit the Western Seaboard
couple weeks ago we purchased a mint condition Koike
Typecaster [the Japanese version of a Monotype Thompson] and are awaiting
its arrival from Hawaii so we can start casting type and add "and
typefoundry" to our name. Our goal is to cast up large quantities
of a house face and also offer the extra type for sale. The typecaster
is coming with holders for foundry/Monotype flat mats, Linotype, and Ludlow.
If you know of any sources for mats let me knowI'm on the hunt.
