“If you are irritated by every rub, then how will you be polished?”


I took an intoduction to typesetting and letterpress class earlier this year with Amanda of Tanline Printing. I had more trouble learning the terminology of typesetting than I did actually setting the type and running the letterpress itself! I originally chose a different passage to work with, but I ran out of the lowercase letter e and had to get more creative!

Letterpress Rumi Print

These were printed in dark purple oil-based ink on textured white paper and I only made 12. They measure 5" x 7". A nice reminder for your home, office, or studio space. Due to the nature of the paper and the process, each print is slightly different from the next.
