Press, Typography, Framing - busy week!

Hand Press Print has featured in Craft-Seller Magazine - see press page for full details. Me, and a few others, are waxing lyrical about the joys of mobile tech when running a small business. All very useful stuff. 

Hand Press Print -Paddle Your Own Canoe Lino Print card
The lovely Blog and Buy Sale have launched their Spring Wish List and Hand Press Print "Paddle Your Own Canoe" card  is featured along side some fantastic works by other artists and makers. Just looking makes me think that Spring might be arriving! (Note to self: do not look out of the window at the snow and rain lashing the grey Edinburgh rooftops when writing this.)

I'm busy working on a new typography piece. My first. Might be printing this on some interesting paper substitutes... it's going to be big too, a full A3. Can't wait to get it finished. The planning has taken several drafts, but I think it's almost ready to go onto lino. Almost. 

I've finally managed to get some more frames up-cycled too. And I was fortunate enough to find a pair of frames. I think the Holyrood Park Series of Arthur's Seat and the Radical Road look great framed together. They'll be coming to my next fair (details to be announced soon).

Here's to the coming week being just as productive!
