Letterpress

Last night I spent my evening rummaging through draws of type. I started my Letterpress course. Our teacher warned us at the beginning that it would probably be a very different pace of working than we were used to. It took me about 1.5 hours to set two lines of type and print it (something that would literally take me 1 minute on the computer) - but there was something amazing about being away from my computer and just getting my hands dirty and working at a much slower pace. I have such a love hate feeling about my computer right now. I think I am going to try and find ways to not use a computer so much. Not sure how that is going to work since I pretty much rely on it for everything - but I will keep you posted!
