Tom Parson’s Tabletop Presses class – May 17

Six students participated in Tom’s day long class about tabletop presses on Sunday May 17. We were introduced to small platen presses such as the C&P Pilot press, and tabletop proof presses. The BAL Adana press was used for the first time. After an overview of the history of the smaller letterpress presses we got some hands on experience setting some type, locking up, and adjusting the presses to suit individual projects.
