I met Andy King (senior curator at M Shed) today. We spoke about the presses in the collection, different printing techniques used during the early 20th Century and the practicalities of producing the postcards for my work. Andy explained that The Letterpress Collective have obtained some of their equipment from M Shed’s collection, including the metal type.
After discussion with Andy, it was agreed that I will use M Shed’s Albion press at the event on the 18th September. I think this will be a great opportunity to get the press out of storage and show visitors what the Letterpress process consists of.
