Paper Jam Press

There are a lot of things I love about letterpress printing. The simplicity, the craft, the practice. The quality of the materials, the machines, the tools and how highly specialized they are. The wood type and how each letter was carved by hand. The fact that the craft is both mathematically precise and filled with inaccuracies.

There are some days while printing where the ink flows and other days that are filled with quirks. Part of the process includes setting everything up and sending a print through to see where things are at. Most of the time there's at least a little bit of adjusting. The following prints are what results when I use the same pieces of paper to print and reprint during the adjustment process.

Pretty neat, right?
