I've been wanting to produce some print for a while now and so after having done a one-to-one tutorial at the Leicester Print Workshop I caved in and spent some money on an Adana 8 x 5 letterpress. My first trials haven't been bad for a beginner and already I'm trying to combine print with design elements, the results of which I will post up shortly. Not having a workshop, however means that all of the paraphernalia, type trays, inks and papers are taking over the house and so as this grows I'm going to need more space - maybe a shed to help me to freeze my fingers off in the winter?! Well at least the press looks pretty in red and goes with my Scandi-chic decor!

My new Letterpress obsession
