I have just become the proud caretaker for a 1902 Chandler and Price letterpress. It's treadle operated (no power needed except my own energy) and can handle paper up to 10x15". It's happier with smaller plates, so I'm working up gradually and beginning with some card and bookplate sized projects. It will be fun to explore the possibilities, and I can't wait to see how it influences my art.
