Self-styled web guru Jakob Nielsen suggested that all sites should have some sort of ‘About’ section to help build credibility. I thought it best that I should offer a couple of words about me and my letterpress fascination.
I started printing in 2005 with an Adana 5 x 3 and have gone on from there to run a number of presses, including a Vicobold and Arab. I never print for money (not even to cover costs); and believe in John Ryder’s philosophy that to get paid would be to shackle oneself to the demands of another person.
All this is done in the garage at home in Rishworth West Yorkshire. It’s a wonderful part of the world, and you probably know you’ve been there because you’ve passed that farm on the M62 that sits between the Lancashire and Yorkshire-bound carriageways.
