Thanks to Steve Robinson of Rising Sun, Indiana, a spiffy new / old press has now landed safely in the Celo Knob Press shop.  Steve’s the greatest–good refurb, amazingly easy set up.  And now the press is up and running.  Here’s a ‘first light’ print run, along with a party invite for my graduating PhD and MA students.  You’ll also see the first production from the Samizdat Press, whose proprietor I’m allowing to use my equipment.  The Samizdat editor is working on a truth-in-labeling project he calls the Orwell Project.   First item, a set of desk cards: on one side “Big Stick” and on the other “Best Practices.”  Broadsides to come!
