Ephemera

Letterpress printing these days in the private and hobby circles is a lot about fun.  A lot of fun can be had with printing of Ephemera.  This is stuff that traditionally did not survive the test of time but these days is often made to a standard that makes it collectable when it is published.

Vandercook Centenary Print Bundle

A print to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the famous Vandercook Cylinder Proofing Press.  I took part with 90 other Vandercook fans around the world to make 100 prints as a birthday token, these were then collected, collated and one of each was returned to each of the participants.

Vandercook Centenary Print Bundle Exhibition Keepsake

With the help of Kalle I arranged to have the prints from the Vandercook Centenary Print Bundle Exhibited at the William Cullen Library at the university of the Witwatersrand.  The exhibition was a success, those who visited were impressed with the quality and variety of the prints, we received mention on the local radio and the university’s student newspaper.  We made a keepsake for the exhibition visitors that I printed.

Over the years I have printed many greeting cards and bookmarks,  as well as kept my business cards up to date.
