Since my first visit to Kidimo workshop, 3 years ago, Nicolas Flachot, who create the project, moved into a space that can accommodate its impressive stock of vintage letters of all sizes! During my last visit to Paris I could explore this new loft.

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 !"

As stated in one of the sentences of the calendar, "Some things take time." I want to publish those photos long ago, but it seems it was waiting for the right moment! I met Jean-Christophe last summer, after visiting El Calotipo in Spain and Miss Clara in Bordeaux. I met him via facebook and I was attracted by a photo of his buisness card!

When Piers Faccini asked me to help him to print posters accompanied the release of his latest album, I thought it was a good opportunity to do a project together! The paper cut Piers created for the cover of the album are perfect for letterpress! We made four posters, two with the album cover and two with the "lovers", alternating black, blue and red colors.

Jean-Christophe has a true passion for ink and paper, machine and pressure! When I asked "why letterpres" I did not expect his answer: "Well, I discovered it on your blog, I order you 2011 calendar and I figure out "this is I want to do" ! I was tired of making websites, so I bought an Heidelberg press, I disassembled and reassembled it and I learned with the manual! "
