Freshman Letterpress

I've always wanted to try letterpress and finally got my chance at Western Editions + WorkShopSF's freshman letterpress workshop! We learned the basic workings of the Vandercook SP-15 press, mixed inks, and sifted through the trays of gorgeous wood type to create "San Francisco is for...." posters - all in Western Editions totally cool garage studio. I chose to complete my poster with a San Francisco staple - pork belly!
