Internships January to March 2011

22 November 2010

We are now accepting applications for internships for January to March next year. To apply, please send us an email. We’ll post again when the places have been taken. We’re sorry, we’re trying to spend as much time printing as possible, so you may not hear from us if we can’t offer you anything.

Hannah finished them today, Angela’s coming to sign them tomorrow, and the launch is on Wednesday. Yippeee! It’s from 10 am to 7 pm at Few and Far, 242 Brompton Road, London SW3 2BB, and we hope to see you there.

Super Caster reassembled

12 November 2010

This is our Super Caster, reassembled at last. It’s been in pieces since it was moved here while we’ve been concentrating on the Composition caster. That’s working much better now, so we asked Gerry Drayton to come back and show us around the Super. A lot of his time was spent looking for missing bits, and since then we’ve been spending more time on plumbing and water leaks than we would have liked. We think we’re ready to have a serious attempt at casting display type now.

Binding Jekyll & Hyde

9 November 2010

Jekyll & HydeHere are the book blocks for The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, which Hannah Byles is binding for us. We had the printed sheets machine folded, and Hannah has sewn them all and stuck on the endpapers. They’re trimmed down and ready to be cased in black cloth. Then we have until the launch on 17 November to tip in the illustrations.
