We’ve spent the last two afternoons at All Along Press, setting type and then printing business cards! The lovely co-founders of All Along Press, Elysia and Steven, were nice enough to invite us to use their Kelsey press. Siena put her brief but in depth type-setting knowledge into practice to create the 19 pica (not this) layout. She had worked with All Along Press back in February and March setting type for the Obsolete Guide to Technology for the Citizens of St Louis, which was a collaboration with ILSSA (Impractical Labor in Service of the Speculative Arts) for the 2011 SGCI Conference.
We paired an aubergine ink with the sky blue cards. A lot of work but a lot of fun. We can’t wait to hand them out!
