Big Jump Press

The Newest Member of the Family

MY NEW PRESSIt’s green, it’s heavy, it’s MINE! More soon about this beautiful FAG SP-40 and the discomfort of owning a press with such a name. It’s a busy week at Big Jump, so forgive this micro-post. Below: a photo from the Art on the Press class I’m running at Ink Spot Press this month. Now I must go and do six things at once. Later, Gator.

In the making

    So. Are you now the owner of TWO letterpress antiques? Are you trying to corner the market? Sounds aggressive to me (though perfectly in tune with unbridled capitalism of the 19th Century). But you need to be heavily capitalized. Speak to your mother about underwriting your business plan.

      Hilarious, Dad. Want me to print you some business cards? I’ll give you a special deal: £15 per letter per card.
