Mexicomystico

Summer 2007

In Morelia, the old spanish colonial capital, we stayed with Erandi. We wanted to get something printed during our trip in Mexico, so she took us to a printers she had spotted and we did a 3 days print session on his 1891 US led press.

Its was a great experience. We composed postcards with the led blocks that were lying around his workshop and Harry also designed a poster.
First we drove off to buy the paper.

Then we chose our blocks and made a composition, which was secured within a wood frame.

    I don’t normally comment on blogs, however I have to say that I rather enjoyed yours as it was illuminating. Ive bookmarked your blog and hope to explorer it further when I have a little more time. Keep up the good work. Well back to my dreaming of Panama or back to the books – I wonder which one is going to win out. 🙂
