Anyone who knows my former professor, Ray Nichols, would laugh if you used his name and the word "wallflower" in the same sentence.
But he and his wife Jill acquired a couple letterpresses and are doing some intriguing work. Work that I honestly don't know how to classify. True letterpress work. Set by hand. Printed by hand. Cut by hand. Like Gutenberg.
A stark contrast to the stuff I've been up to my eyeballs in.
