Bob Giles is the man. He runs BnS Letterpress out of his studio with printing presses from the 1920’s, 1890’s and beyond. The Linotype machine in particular has 3,600 some odd parts to it, is built like a buick, and the only known person who can legitimately repair one is an elderly traveling the US in 2 year cycles. But he’s old… so the future of Bob’s passion is a bit uncertain to say the least.

Bob welcomed us into his studio, showed us his toys, and made us some custom slugs… It was quite rad, and worth many thank you notes.
