Paper Jam Press

A while back, I was asked to write a guest blog post for Felt and Wire which is now Mohawk Connects. I thought a lot about what I wanted to say and arrived at the importance of having things that are real. Been thinking about that a lot again lately.

"We need things that are real. The real affects our work by affecting us as individuals, by keeping us rooted and reminding us that we can project our human power onto things that exist. We can manipulate small parts of the world with our ideas and our hands. As human beings, we can connect to one another through our physicality. UI design does much to satisfy my intellect, but letterpress printing satisfies my soul."

As I read this, I am reminded of how thankful I am for all that letterpress and this community has given me all these years. You guys are my soul food.

Keep Ya Head Up.
