Tools of the trade

We are totally obsessed with all things letterpress (obviously!). We adore the delicate, beautifully detailed, elegant invitations and stationery pieces that we print, one-by-one, by hand, in our studio. So isn't it an amazing juxtaposition to see the rough tools used to produce this work? We are constantly grateful for our big, cumbersome, yet perfectly calibrated presses. Here are a few pics that are a little different from our usual product shots:
