It's not easy being green

Today I had the immense pleasure of watching three very hard-working, incredibly patient, and wonderfully creative ladies complete their first ever letterpress project, and boy, were they all spectacular!

Meet Alice, Lauren and Leah:

Braving the multitude of fonts and typecases, operating both the Vandy and a stubborn little Kelsey, wading through mountains of wood type, hunting for just the right size spacer, learning how to read backwards (sort of...), just look what they created!

Ah, the joys of typesetting...

That darned backwards reading thing...

Learning to love the lockup.

A great green hello by Alice.

Leah's perfect leaf.

Thank you ladies, for making the first workshop such a splendiferous success! I'm so incredibly proud of all of you!
