I have been playing around with this complex arrangement of all “sorts” of miscellaneous items from our type cases. Little bit of wood type, some 72pt and 48pt lead foundry type, odd sized borders, and decorative elements. Ran a few test prints on the C&P but had lots of issues with spacing and locking up the type. When I finished cleaning up the Showcard press I inked up the chase with some Copper Gold ink and pulled a few prints. I was really happy with the results. It made a nice impression and I had lots of control. I had been worried if the cracks in the impression roller were going to cause problems. So far there isn’t an issue. I always love quotes, always so profound. Sometimes a good quote can put everything into perspective, or just put a smile on your face.
