This morning I got a very exciting package from Germany. As you might have noticed I am into block printing lately and I have been looking for a good manual press for a while. Its slim pickings in the US unless you want to spend $300-$2,000 on a roller press. Unexpected salvation came from the land of Gutenberg. Konrad from ABIG was kind enough to mail me this beautiful industrial-looking A4 hand lever press! love it.
This weekend I will test print my old peacock print. I am also working on a new 3 color print. If all will go well I will put some original prints for sale on Etsy so stay tuned if you are interested. Here is a sneak preview of my new print still in the carving stage:
