I want to work here.

Please watch this movie about Firefly Press of Somerville, MA. They do letterpress, and it’s one of the most amazing things I’ve seen recently.
Scott, we should call this guy and ask him if we can come over.

  1. And this is what your gram was trained to do in her girlhood and practiced in her youth and well into her marriage — the best in the business locally! — and that is enough for you to ask her if she will a) show you her sample book (a requisite in order for her to graduate from trade school) and b) talk to you about its beautiful mysteries.
    Elegance above all.

  2. OK, I’ve never endured a more frustrating narration than that guy. I’ve only heard two men ever speak that listlessly – and they both appear on the damn video!

  3. I kept looking for an intergal, a summation sign,
    or a partial derivative. Imagine how beautiful
    math typography would look done in this stuff.
    It would be awesome to feel:
    \sum_{k=0}^{m} f(a + k h) = \frac{1}{h} \int_a^b f(x)~dx + \frac{1}{2} \left[ f(b)+f(a) \right]
    + \sum_{k=1}^{n-1}\frac{h^{2k-1}B_{2k}}{(2k)!} \left\{ f^{(2k-1)}(b) – f^{(2k-1)}(a) \right\} +
    O\left( \frac{h^{2n}}{(2n)!}\right)
    We should stop by.

  4. OhMa’God,Wax, YouCharmerYou: That Man knows his place in the universe and, like most wise men, is mo v ing s low without regard for anything but the thing itself. In brief, his whatyoucall listlessness is entirely appropriate to his Self-in-Place.
    (Of all people, I’dathot you would have KNOWn that! and just maybe … Admired it.)
    Lovely few minutes.
