One thought on “Going to Press

  1. Hello Hugh! I’m glad I stumbled onto your page…you are an inspiration, and I love your press, your books, and your dedication to letterpress. I have a 1909 Chandler and Price lettepress that I print book covers, art projects, and one day hope to publish books…my press is a 10×15 and in my semi-retirement (not there yet but hoping to get there in a few short years, I’m 55 now) my wife and I plan to sell our home in California and move to Old Louisville, where I was born, and run a turn of the century print shop and museum. I am a printer in california and have worked for this company for nearly 30 years now.

    Keep printing, and send me a line when you have the time,
