Such an epic course
in Letterpress

at LetterpressAmsterdam, printing with the Questa Grande Wood type. Questa designer martin Majoor and master typographer Thomas Gravemaker were the eloquent, thoughtful and helpful teachers, under whose guidance we had a superb collaboration between teachers and students, reaching the highest possible result!
