Cannonball Press at work–Mike Houston on the little Vandercook (vintage 1938) letterpress, and Martin Mazorra (the blur)stabilizing it
Saturday’s free The Shirt Off ‘Yer Back event at Space 1026 offered a double freebie–Cannonball Press was there with a tiny little press, printing woodblock prints–you supply the t-shirt (if you didn’t have one, they’d sell you one for $2). And Space 1026 supplied silkscreen prints for those who preferred.
There were no bad choices.
Here are our his and hers typewriters
Murray and I both went for a woodblock print of an old-fashioned typewriter. I’m thinking about adding some studs or something on the jeans shirt to complete my tough-girl image.
Check out my Flickr set for a sense of the event.
