      I like this. I've viewed it a few times and keep coming back. It's great! Good story behind it, too. You're lucky to have a "real" press to play with! :)

      Yeah, it just wouldn't be the same without the upside-down exclamation point.

      That would be my Typographica partner Joshua Lurie-Terrell. I saw it in the show and it looked great.

      Looks good! I just passed at the POINT JAUNE museum and thought you might want to have a look at those.

      This is truly beautiful. I might have done the ! up the other way so it was obvious but seriously this is amazing. I love the choice of red and black ink. It's something that would be literally impossible to recreate digitally.

      Thanks so much. The ink coloring is really a happy accident :)
