2 days of letterpress at LENvention2 (see http://len4letterpress.blogspot.co.uk/) in Cheltenham, making a book inspired by a beautiful poem written by Elizabeth Willow entitled 'Because' about the why of letterpress. This poem plays magically with the terminology & sometimes obscure vocabulary of letterpress. The construction of the book was devised by Rachel Marsh.

We were each given 2 lines from the poem to work with. My lines were:

Because of winters and coffins and slugs

Because each page is a poem

Good to work collaboratively and to start and (almost) finish a project from scratch in 2 days.
