I’m a bit behind, (better late than never) but the other week I popped into St Brides Library with Soofiya and Sara to see Emily Martin’s Pantone Postcard Project.

It’s worth the wait anyway… So on Friday 9th November, Jack & I ventured to London for a day of letterpress talks. The event was brought to my attention by my tutor, Barrie, and I’m so glad that it was – it was such a great day! I’d...
