Default Letterpress equipment, free!

Gene Gable — former publisher of Publish among other editorial/publishing jobs; one-time boss of Seybold Seminars; and now a columnist on Creative Pro (and always a nice guy) — is giving away his letterpress press, type caster, type, and assorted paraphernalia.

If you are having fantasies of a letterpress life, this is a great deal. All you have to do is be the first to agree to (a) take all of it; and (b) go pick it up. I believe the stuff is in coastal California, an hour or so north of San Francisco. He says he will help by operating the forklift (required).

Read about this decision and look at snapshots of the equipment in Gene’s Halloween column entitled “Heavy Metal Madness: The Agony of Defeat.”

I have also harbored this sort of dream; fortunately, I never acted on it (well, except for my little Kelsey platen press and a few cases of type). I do hope Gene finds a taker.
