Letterpress printing - Margaret McAllister - WWOOFer
Using one of my books from Homeprints 'Book Arts Centre Library', 'making Handmade Books - 100 + bindings, structures and forms' Margaret displays 5 examples of folded and some glued books she made while staying in the Homeprint Studio. No sewing in her examples. Using a selection of wood type Margaret created and printed an A4 keep sake poster.
Married to Allison for 45 years, 3 sons, David, Russell and Paul. I have been primary school teaching in New Zealand for 32 years and for the last 11 years have been developing a Book Art Studio, Library, Art Gallery and substantial warehouse of printmaking equipment and materials. We have a Letterpress Printing and Bookbinding Museum that is a working collection. I have invented an A4 relief printing press and an A3 hydraulic printing press that I manufacture and sell throughout New Zealand with sales into 5 countries overseas. Allison and I have written, illustrated, set, printed, bound and published over 100 titles of artist books.
