A really lovely write up, with some great photos, of friends at Incline Press in Oldham. I especially like the photo that I’ve appropriated above — Graham appearing to be about to perform a magical spell!
Please shout, MIB, if I should remove this pic.

Notes from Korea on
Printing in Korea, including presses and some rather Monotype-esque casters.
I have some sympathy for the Risograph people. Their process isn’t like ours: using movable types, but they operate with the same limitations — a single colour each pass and a limited means of reproduction.
This guide from the
Hato Press explains the limitations — and the qualities of Riso printing — beautifully.
I also stumbled on this colour chart from Fredk. Aldous of Manchester —

A great place, accompanied with a
great write up.
A lovely write up of
last month’s Wayzgoose at the St Bride Foundation by Type & Press.
News of another letterpress fan in Yorkshire — the
Yorkshire Post reports on Steve Bowen’s ‘ York Letterpress‘.
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.
An excellent article by Bob Richardson for the St Bride Foundation Blog on
