Hello all of our wonderful backers!
We would like to start by saying thank you to everyone for being so patient with us as we finish restoring the letterpress. We recently went to the International Print Museum in Carson, CA, and finished putting it back together. Pictured below is the full letterpress in all her beauty. If you look back at update #6, you'll see how incredibly rusty she was, and how much elbow work we put into making her look brand new.
This weekend we ordered all of the rest of the pieces: quoins, quoin key, tympan, black rubber ink, boxcar base, and a few other wonderful little pieces. We primarily ordered from a wonderful little shop, Letterpress Things.
We would also like to say thank you for being patient as we had hoped to finish by the end of December. We are almost done with the books! Our new deadline is in the beginning of March. If you ordered just our tiny book, we will be requesting your address information by the end of the week, and mailing out your books in the following week. If you ordered anything more than that, it will be ready in early March. We thank you all for your wonderful support!
