Moving a Letterpress

The MPRESS is finally ready to print. The move took two days and up to 6 people to move a 1000lbs Westmann and Baker Platen Press. I was lucky enough to have the services of Stephen Sword, a renowned letterpress expert who disassembled and reassembled the beast. Others invovled were an engineer, a building contractor, two graphic designers, and a borrowed husband. Here are a few pics from the day.

Hmmm. Normally I would cringe at anything but basic black but I have to admit the red is very, very cool.
