Officina Briani - Letterpress workshop with Brian Allen


I'm finally back on the blogging train, I promise I will not leave for so long next time...

I had the pleasure of spending the weekend with Brian Allen at his letterpress printing studio, Officina Briani (Latin for “workshop of Brian”) in Raleigh, North Carolina. Brian has 4 antique presses in his studio, his presses include an 1850s Improved Albion hand press, a Hohner 9x12 tabletop platen, and a Gietz 12x18 one color motorized handfed platen. He also shared his substantial knowledge of the history of printing and typography, as well as his extensive library of books on the these subjects.

Brian, I'm looking forward to my next visit!!

Here's a link to my photos from the weekend
