I had a great day yesterday working on a photo project with the good people at Sun Printing in Wausau, Wisconsin. Completely separate from the main project, I grabbed these images of some of their letterpress equipment while I was there. I'll be honest, I only have a vague clue what half these things are or what they actually do, but they look really cool. I'm not going to kid myself and pretend that I'm going to start letterpressing anything, but in another life I think I could have been way into this stuff. It's got all kinds of great little parts and widgets and gears and stuff. It's probably also tedious, so I suspect that I'm way better off leaving it as a romantic, artistic notion than a real life dissappointment. Either way, it makes for some cool photos. Thanks to Craig Bieri for being the human lightstand for these images; you, sir, can hold an umbrella with the best of them, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
