Quiet Fire Retreat

Today I held the first Quiet Fire Retreat, with four of us (Anna Horvath, Gahlord DeWald, Greg Fisher, and myself), working improvisationally together, constructing a complex letterpress form, using lots of multi-letter sizing  and hand fitting…hard work… especially doing design changes, which require reworking the fill spacing around the various sizes. We pushed beyond the resistance, to make the effort, to get the final design we wanted,

which we printed at the end of the day in an edition of 56, plus artist proofs for each of us.
