This letterpress blog will be much different than any others currently on-line. The focus of the blog will be on antique printer’s blocks, aka letterpress cuts. Most other blogs in the letterpress arena are in reference to actual letterpress printing operations. We would recommend visiting some of them to get an idea of the high quality work others are producing using this Historic method. There are some exceptional letterpress printing operations and individuals out there and they would welcome your support, business, questions, or comments.
We've created this blog as an extension of our Damosel's Printers Blocks
website. The blog will allow us to expand on our descriptions and offer more in-depth information on specific blocks. We have modified the appearance to not follow the standard blog templates and hope that it offers an interesting and enjoyable experience. We will do our best to keep the content interesting and consistent.
At Damosel’s Printers Blocks we carry a wide range of Historic antique blocks. Topics range from simple graphics to very ornate designs. All of our blocks are from the mid to late 19th century, and into the 20th century. We have many categories listed, some of which include:
Early Political and Patriotic Print Blocks
Early Foundry Cast Printers Type Blocks
Early Farm and Wild Animal Print Blocks
Early Fraternal Logos and Symbols Print Blocks
Early Holiday Topic Print Blocks
Early Billhead and Document Print Blocks
Early Foundry Identification and Pin Mark Library
WWI era Eickhorn German Edged Weapon Print Blocks
Classic American Advertisement Print Blocks
Sports Related Print Blocks
There are wood type, copper face, white metal face, foundry cast, and linoleum face. Our collection continues to grow and we will be adding many new items this year. We are committed to maintaining a website that offers insight to printing and publishing methods and materials of the past.
Please visit us and have a look around. We offer a gallery for viewing, information and links pages, as well as an on-line store. There are blocks available for purchase from $1 and up.
Below we have left this first post loaded with Nucleus links and information for those interested in evaluating or using a Nucleus CMS Blog. A lot of people worked very hard to offer such incredible, free software. We feel it is only right to give credit where credit is due.
