Printing Press Porn! A Short Video.

The Columbian.

Here’s a short film of a stunner! The lovely Columbian printing press at Swansea Print Workshop. Easily my most favourite press in the world. I drool over it. Well, not literally. That would make it icky.  

Invented by American George Clymer around 1813, it took over from the Stanhope Press and allowed a whole newspaper page to be printed in one pull. It didn’t sell well in the USA so Clymer moved to Britain a few years later and established a very successful business manufacturing and supplying the Columbians across Britain and Europe. 

And here’s a quick ink sketch of the bald eagle on top of the Columbian ….

Here’s one I did earlier.

Raising Funds.

My family is raising money for Phil, a younger relative of mine, to have life-changing surgery in Spain. Phil is disabled by Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and the operation he needs isn’t currently available in the UK. I know times are hard, but if you’re able to spare a bob or two, please click here find out more or to donate a small amount to Phil’s crowdfunding campaign. Thank you xxx
