Maybe it’s partly having grown up in England plus the fact that Harpers & Queen magazine, my first job out of college, was actually set on a linotype machine, (usually in 9 on 10 pt Modern No 7) that lead (sorry couldn’t avoid that one!) to my love of letterpress. Since we opened our doors in 1988, our business cards have always been printed by Pat Reagh (see previous post). So when the lovely ladies at Mohawk said would you like to be a part of the Feedback Loop, we were right there!
The project asked 25 letterpress printers to create notebooks that would be sold in that lovely shop on the Felt & Wire blog. As we’re not actually printers we enlisted Ph.D alumni Heather Mitchell and her Just Vandy press to print the covers.
We’re very happy with the dotty work, (start with the King of The Mountains jersey and work backwards). We hope you are too, and if you would like to buy one, you’d better hurry they only have 50!
And as the sales support our good friends Mark and Andrea at World Studio and their Design Ignites Change-School By Design project, we’re even happier.
