Two years ago Nelly Gable, award winning French punchcutter, received a mission order from the French government to travel to teach Julia Ferrari the art of punchcutting, the ancient art of engraving letters at size [...]

Everything was packed and waiting for me. In fact, everything could have come back to me [...]
