third annual letterpress printers fair

For the third year in a row I'll be participating in this really excellent fair. This year it is being hosted by Em Space and should be bigger and better than ever. If you love letterpress, don't miss it! And come early. The past two years have seen lines out the door before the opening. People want to get in on the good deals!
