I had the pleasure of visiting the first Shipley Wayzgoose organised by the Papercut Bindery and the Print Project. An excellent event!
Great to meet new people, like
Pat Randle; put faces to names like Nick Gill, Nick Hand with his Printing Bike, and David Armes from Todmorden; and meet old friends like Graham Moss and Christian Brett.
Quite apart from the social the work on display was tremendous and the opportunity to buy letterpress odds and sods could not be passed up.
Shipley’s Kirkgate Centre was a great venue and encouraged one to linger with tea and a bun.
Shipley Wayzgoose: A hive of activity within twenty minutes of the doors opening!
Thanks to those that travelled from far and wide (and on bikes) to get to Shipley and especial thanks to Roger Grech and Nick Loaring for organising.

Exciting news of a Wayzgoose in Shipley in June!
Friends at I Love Typography have a delightful article about
chromatic type. Like other letterpress printers I fetishise these types, including the newly-produced woodletter.

Joshua Panter was in touch to let me know of his short film about Hooksmith Press in East London.
I thought it’d be of interest to your readers as it’s a thriving letterpress business, and the short covers both the story of owner Russell Frost and his journey from New Zealand to East London, along with an insight into the craft of letterpress and what it takes to create a print.
