Rolling Stone Poem

Very recently I was surprised and delighted to hear from Daniel Rayzel inquiring about my poem Stars. This had been published in Rolling Stone on May 20, 1976. Daniel was kind enough to send a copy of a photo he had taken. I was a bit clueless as both records and copies of my published poetry had long ago been sent to the University of Minnesota Archives and are near impossible to access. Quite grateful for this find as the three or four other of my poems that were published in the magazine have been hard to find.

Forthcoming Monograph

Saturday, July 21, I was part of a discussion on the LA Letterpress Scene that the International Printing Museum presented as part of the APA Letterpress Wayzgoose that occurred July 20 through the 23. I talked about the development and use of photopolymer in Los Angeles as well as announcing the forthcoming 5th edition of my monograph, Printing digital type on the hand-operated flatbed cylinder press, which will be produced soon in a print version by Chatwin Books, Seattle.

Printing digital type on the hand-operated flatbed cylinder press, the “seminal manual on letterpress printing with the photopolymer plate process,” was originally published in 1998 and went through four print editions before being discontinued at the Press in 2014.
