Cold streets, hot metal in Amsterdam

Eurostar-ed to Amsterdam with @val_littlewood to meet up with Thomas Gravemaker at LetterPress Amsterdam; to spend 5 working days turning the lino-cuts — that Val had painstakingly designed, cut and checked (oh, and my words of course) — into ink on paper.

Here’s the intrepid artist, hard at work and being filmed (unbeknownst to her and I) by Thomas. Excuse the off-camera comments from yours truly; I’m asking questions, not guiding.

The press is a Vandercook and the paper is Zerkall.

The main printing complete, the book is now waiting for the end papers to be designed and printed and then Val moves onto the work of binding it all together. So, not much to do now (joking).

There’s more shots here of the work involved.

So, desperate to get hold of a copy (and who wouldn’t be?)?

You can; just sign-up here
