My amazing girlfriend bought me my my first letterpress last night. An Adana 8x5.
Here it is, to the left!!
Thanks to Jeremy for selling it to me!! What a guy. So helpful
and just a generally nice person. He supplied me with the press, quoins, keys, wood type, fancy borders and blocks and some ink!!
I am very grateful!!
Not only was I lucky enough to find one of these sought after machines, I was lucky to get a good amount of wooden type and borders to be starting off with. There is an image of just one set.
All of this for just 210 Queens!! A bargain I think! The Typeface unknown at this moment in time, but I will find out. It all needs a good clean up so that is my plan for Saturday, before I get started with any of it!!
Its all really exciting.
My new venture does actually start out here!!
