This is something I love about letterpress, that everything should have a place. Some of my most relaxing and fulfilling days have been spent sorting type. I once totally lost my cool at MSU in Bozeman and alphabetized and sorted 17 cases of wood type (probably over 30 fonts). It felt so good!
People have been asking me what I'm doing after this residency, and I just keep hoping that I will get to sort type to make the fonts whole again. Someone give me a Hell Bucket of type and I'll sort every last little bit.
Can I get paid to do that?
