I use a printing press like a sledge hammer.

I am not a great printer and I do it because it makes me laugh.

Yesterday I was going to go back to the allotment and plant some raspberries I had scrounged of a neighbour and I thought “NO PRINT INSTEAD!!!!!”

Make cute little books so that the buyers at the craft shop can fall in love with them and I’ll tell stories about them.
I’ll tell the buyers that I call the books lovely names like star, foal, puppy, ducky and kitten when I am making them.
That over twenty procedures have gone in to making them.
That these materials are the best in the world.

Go back ages ago last year when I had loads of money from a gazillion commissions and I was spending it on materials, books and equipment. I didn’t think it was worth mentioning but I got a set of plates made for the press and it was always in my mind that I could do this.
