Yesterday I finished up the last scores on the book covers--the scoring is definitely the trickiest part of the process. After going through the press four times, just one misfeed on that last score means that cover is scrapped. (Thankfully, I only had two misfeeds!)
May Day Studio is a bookbinding and letterpress printing studio in Montpelier, Vermont. I envision the day when all correspondence will be letterpressed, and all journals will be one-of-a-kind. May Day Studio’s letterpress visions are achieved with handset type, original papers from handcarved linoleum blocks, and a small army of antique printing presses. We like to think that it's the unique intersection of new and old, skill and craft that makes May Day Studio stand out in the crowd of cookie-cutter design.
