About:
I work as a volunteer in the historical printing office (letterpress machinery) of the Miat, museum for Industrial Archaeology and Textiles. I have a weakness for everything what has to do with typography. The Miat is for me a sort of 'ideal workspace' with a wide range of letters and presses for me to experiment with.
