The Pressman | BnS Letterpress Video

A very good friend of mine, Bob Giles, sent me a link to this video yesterday.  I wanted to share it with you all because, not only is it a neat interview with him, but it also has a lot of footage of Bob’s letterpress print shop as well as some historic printing footage.  Without the help of Bob, Twin Ravens Press probably wouldn’t be in existence today.  Shortly after I graduated from college, Bob took me under his wing and taught me a vast majority of what I know about letterpress printing.  He’s an amazing guy, and I’m so happy that I ran into him years ago.

This video was produced by University of Oregon School of Journalism student, Isaac Viel.  Check it out!

    Just wanted to say thank you to Kristin for her kind words. As Ellen says, “Right back at you”.
    I am very proud of being a small part in Kristin’s love of Letterpress and helping her get started on her own. She was a quick learner and came to the plate with a rich knowledge and ability. Her art work is to behold. I cannot imagine anyone not having a good experience with their printing projects, whatever they may be. She is so versatile and creative.
    Most of all and lucky for me, she is my friend.
