Get some school text books on letterpress printing, then read, study, check out the many, many websites under letterpress, visit letterpress shops where most old timers are willing to share their knowledge and experience! Years ago, apprenticeships in the printing trades were six (yes six) years. Learn the proper methods, bad habits are hard to break. The easiest way is not always the proper way! So take it a step at a time and don’t rush it. Learn the basics first…hand set type, spelling, style, lever presses, paper, ink, bindery, printing history, etc. Good luck, have fun along the way and enjoy!
