Shooting a bunch of new samples for a talk I am doing next month for the Akron Advertising Federation. So to clear the decks I’ve just uploaded to our flickr a load of old letterpress sample images I’d taken over the last year or so but never got around to sharing.
Specimens above from Grey Cardigan, Guts & Glory, Sourballpython Studios, and The Thoughtful Type.
Now to get to snapping again.

Old Shit Around the Shop
The type drawer pulls proved so popular it gave me an idea. Beginning today we’ll share occasional posts of the interesting and odd contraptions found around our letterpress shop.
The series will be titled ‘Old Shit Around the Shop’
Sometimes we will know exactly what the things is. Other times we may not be totally sure. That’s the case with this piece. We believe it’s a device for making string loops. If we are wrong or you know for certain please let us know. In the meantime enjoy while I get back to my looping.

Hello again from Ohio.

The cranky old man is coming home to tumblr. Like the modern companies, we’ve been busy rethinking our social networking stategy. Basically the clever plan we’ve come up with is to just share more goodies, more often.

With this in mind we are starting with the Cranky Pressman blogging efforts. For quite a while we’ve had a regular blog but with irregular postings. Time for some digital prunes you could say with the tumblr format.
