Well it looks like it does!
I have been coveting the Adana letterpress printers on Ebay for some time now, literally aching to get my hands on a letterpress machine i am getting impatient . The whole idea of creating something by hand really appeals to me , totally craps on the whole “lets just press a button on my computer and print this out” ; Now don;t get me wrong there is a time and a place for computer printers, it’s not like i want to do everything via letterpress but wowzers you can create beautiful things when you know what you are doing on a press.
Here are a few things i have been admiring Letterpress wise .
This has been handmade by Roll And Tumble Press – available HERE on Etsy
This oversized Calendar just kicks ass – Again hand printed by 1canoe2 Available HERE
1canoe2 also do letterpress printed cards too available HERE
I could go on and on listing literally everything 1canoe2 make because their work is totally awesome – i am a fan/stalker of them. They make letterpress look amazing and that’s a combination of the fact that they are REALLY good at art & design and i bet they have a lot of experience in printing. Good job they are based in the USA or i probably would start hanging around their studio asking for their autographs and giggling like a Take That fan from the 90’s (Howard totally rocked Take That by the way).
So i’m not quite sure where my quest in learning letterpress will take me, a year so back the printers on Ebay were around £200 ish maybe even less but know it seems everyone has caught onto my obsession just to nark me off and drive these machine above my price range as they are now around £400 or more. Plus you have to buy all the type for them and ink etc etc. Totally my fault for procrastinating.
For now i will go on loving prints like these
