The class is going really well. Last week we visited two special collections and looked at beautiful old books. The assignment for this week is 1. cut out individual letters and 2. cut a linoleum block of lettering. I hope they all do it because we are going to print next week. If someone drops the ball that will be unfortunate. There is also no type at school so we have to improvise. There is a Vandercook which is a start. I knew I had some wood type with my big collection in the basement. Time to see if I could dig it out.

And goodness knows what Jacques discovered behind the other 15 drawers of type.
In the meantime I'll leave you with this cartoon my dad sent me:
