The powers of the Smaltimore print community brought me this guillotine and new printy contacts this month. The guillotine came from a local printer named Cat, who caught the printing bug from Mary Mashburn, who taught me letterpress too. Cat and her husband were sweet enough to help move the guillotine into the studio– it's about 1,000 lbs lighter than Joe, but still heavy. All the cool tools are beasts..except for my new tiny type!
I'm imagining all the books and chunky stacks of paper I'll be able to slice though – just need to sharpen the blade first!
