Poem Proofs

In our workshops today, we were able to run a few proofs of the first page of our poem by Vita Sackville-West on the Zerkell 145gsm paper bought for the project.

We had a few issues with evenness of impression (see the last line), but this looks like a pretty good start. Tomorrow we’ll work with some ‘make-ready’ (raised paper on the platen bed) which will hopefully even out these impression issues.

Even still, we are super happy with these first prints. It really makes the project feel alive to see the poem emerging like this!
