APHA's Chesapeake Chapter visit

Yesterday we were lucky to have the Chesapeake Chapter of the American Printing History Association join us for a papermaking workshop.
The American Printing History Association (APHA) is a membership organization that encourages the study of the history of printing and related arts and crafts, including calligraphy, typefounding, typography, papermaking, bookbinding, illustration, and publishing.
It was especially fun to get to meet Jill Cypher, Ray Nichols, and Bill Roberts of Lead Graffiti in who are are real printing movers and shakers out in Newark, DE.
Hope to see some prints on the paper they made!


  1. I'm so sad to have missed it! Wish I could have come down- it's been a long time since I made paper. Hope they save a sheet for their VP :)

  2. If anyone is interested in seeing a lot of photos from the workshop you can see them here on the Chesapeake Chapter's website and a closeup of that pulp we were beating to a pulp.

  3. Wow! Thanks for passing those pictures along!
