Officina Briani/Artisan Printer/Brian Allen

I have a letterpress printing studio in Durham, North Carolina, where I do general jobbing work and fine art printing. I also conduct introductory letterpress classes. Presses are: an 1850s Improved Albion hand press, a Hohner 9x12 tabletop platen, and a Swiss Gietz 12x18 parallel impression, handfed, platen.
I spent 20+ years in digital font production, beginning in 1982, am a calligrapher, and had my first letterpress class in Boston in 1978.
