Type on the Cob II with Ladies of Letterpress June 16, 2015 20:31
I've just recently returned from Type on the Cob II, the 4th Ladies of Letterpress conference, in Mt. Pleasant, IA. We decided to make it a week-long family adventure/road trip with a 10-month old baby in tow! We made a few stops along the way there and back, visiting small towns and odd museums, and had lots of picnics. (One of my favorites was The Museum of Appalachia - stop if you're ever passing by!) The conference itself was fantastic as usual, with plenty of presses running and ink flying. I was lucky to be ably to spend most of one afternoon at a Linotype with Tim Fay of the Wapsipinicon Almanac. I love hot metal, starting from my iron casting days at East Carolina U. Baby Milo was a real trooper and will soon be a road warrior like his dad. I'm worn out and don't want to see the inside of a car again for a long while.
