Letterpress Takeover - 26.03.14
I attended the second Letterpress Takeover event at The Waiting Room. It had a guest speaker, Justin from Typoretum, who gave a great talk on many people who do letterpress and they cool things that can be done with such an old process. The presentation also gave me a few ideas of things that I could include in my FMP as it ties in with what I am doing.
The evening followed with helping to clean and organise the metal type that is soon to be available to use at The Waiting Room. Getting messy and cleaning the type and organising it also gave me some more ideas that I can include. Paul, the events organiser also showed me some old catalogs and manuals that came with all the metal type which will be really relevant for my research.
