A few Dads & a bunch of Dingbats June 28 2012

Went to the Printing Arts Fair this past Father's Day, at the Museum of Printing in N. Andover, MA. I did see a few dads, but many more DINGBATS! After all it was an event of all types!

Several quite interesting Ed from Swamp Press , Andy Volpe, the intaglio printer who also does historical reenactments, Carolyn Muskat; master lithographer, who I may have met before...we think. Then, there was Jesse of Marsolais Press & Lettercarving, who is the youngest stone carver I've ever met who studied with the John Stevens Shop in Newport, RI. , Bessie-the twin behind B. Impressed, and Craig Busteed of Green Turtle Press who seemed impressed with the blossom lace card stock available at Paper Connection or at PaperNado. Finally, there were those papermakers, without whom I wouldn't have become a "paperwoman"; my old friend Richard of Langdell Papers and my newer friend and leader of The Boston Paper Collective, Melinda Cross. It was so great to see all of you!
