This weekend, at the invitation of Clint Harvey, Head of the School of Design College Australia, I went to Paris to meet Denis and Mylène, who have a lettepress studio... on a boat!

I met Clint 3 years ago during a short time in Brisbane to do a talk, I had the great pleasure to do a typography workshop and print with wood type ! A great time. Since then, we kept in touch and when he told me that he would be in Paris , we had to see us! But I did not expect that! Imagine 4 fans of typography and printing on a large houseboat with a printing studio ! Add it a little wine, some design books and it was a beautiful exchange !

Denis and Mylène spent six months in Australia, that's where Denis is formed letterpress with Clint. After a career in finance, Denis decided to change his life and get to letterpress ! Mylène is a graphic designer, what a duet! So he bought the machine, then invited an American printer perfecting his technique ! Another fine example of people who created their life and " when we want, we can !"

Excellent work! However, I think the B.O.I.D project dragon is too similar to the Wales national dragon, even the gold coins look...
