A well-lived life has dimension: a physical one in nature; a critical-thinking one in the mind; a creative one in the heart.

In turn, the tactile papers and imprinted words of letterpress more deeply resonate with a dimensional, well-lived, life.

Made by hand
- Elemental forces in an enduring, well-lived, life.

This 1:41 second video is a look at my studio, with my cherished 1850s Albion handpress, and me printing on my Gietz Model 60 parallel-platen, one color, letterpress press. This press is rare in the US and is a wonderful machine!

I have a dedication to old-fashioned values of quality and craftsmanship.
