StrongArm Press at the Bacon Factor

Print's not dead. I decided to have some fun one cold, winter evening in an old 1930's restored bacon factory...

If you like print. If you like paper. If you like typography. And you don't mind getting your hands dirty. Then this restored 1930's bacon factory is a place for you to visit. Tucked away in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, I managed to get in touch with Clint Harvey, a passionate man who knows more than a thing or two about letterpress. His workshop is eye candy for those who appreciate history, wood, and heavy machinery that makes letterpress possible. This was my first visit, and my first time at practising this fine art of print. I'll definitely be back again. In the meantime, read up on what they are about, here, and have a look at the pics below of me trying my hand at it.
