When I was in college, my typography class took a field trip to One Heart Press in San Francisco, run by the renowned designer, Michael Osborne. It truly made such a huge ..... er, um (I have to say it!) impression on me. So much so, that several years ago, I designed a small run of letterpress holiday cards and stationery in collaboration with 9 Spot Monk which was sold online and at one of my neighborhood shops in Brooklyn.
