Nice little video by Naomie Ross about letterpress printing. I am a big fan of this method of putting words on paper. Tactile, not digital. Movable type, and ink, and noble machines that press inked letters to paper. Invented by Johannes Gutenberg in the mid-15th century and currently experiencing somewhat of a revival. Excited about the "Introduction to Letterpress" class that I've signed up for at the Center for Book Arts

Snowing like crazy at the moment. Good day to be inside. Making bread (see Waiting for the Snow).
