Maid in Britain: The sensory pleasures of printing and pressing

Mary from Maid in Britain has been in touch — the Ruf­ford Print­ing Co in Mawdes­ley, Lan­cashire helped me pro­duce a book­let — a first for them I think — type­set on the last Inter­type machine of its kind ever made and which was in use at the Guardian until 1987 — then hand print­ed on a Van­der­cook.

This is all writ­ten up, and beau­ti­ful­ly pho­tographed on the Maid in Britain blog.
