Interview with Peter from Reinvented Press
When did you start letterpress printing?: 
What do you like best about letterpress printing?: 
It is the analog counterpoint to my daily digital day job; I love the limitations imposed by the medium, and the slow unveiling of the trade from practice and discussion.
Which press(es), ink & paper do you usually use?: 
I print on both a Golding Jobber No. 8 (1915) and Adana Eight Five, using all manner of paper and ink, from inexpensive index cards to fine handmade paper from St. Armand.
How would you describe your artwork?: 
What kind of products do you create?: 
Broadsides, posters, missives, quotes, messages, propaganda. Everything but wedding invitations.
Do you offer custom work?: 
Where can we buy your products?: 
DIrectly from me.
Do you offer workshops? If yes, what kind of?: 
On occasion I offer an introduction to letterpress on a one-on-one basis.
Is there anything you wished you had known as a beginner?: 
All of the equipment, skills, techniques and inspiration will come: you simply need to hold your breath and dive in.
