Beauty in Imperfection

After months of tinkering, the letterpress is now running! Nearly 100 years old and it still purrs like a kitten. Sunday, April 27th marked the press' very first print run in nearly 13 years. Some say that practice makes perfect but I prefer the notion that beauty is in the imperfections.
