In 2012, I bought a 100 year old 6x9 Curtis & Mitchell Columbian No. 2 treadle letterpress, which I have been using for the past few years. I plan to print using only handset type, wood type & vintage cuts & images acquired over the past 40+ years—thus leading to the name “100% PURE Letterpress.” I started in printing in the mid-70’s & bought my first Kelsey 3x5 press at 14 years old. When I retire in 2017, I might teach “Intro to Letterpress” classes at my home or at an arts center.
