"This 'F' is about friends. The letter is part of a collection of second-hand letterpress that I bought with some pals as a student - our university having just scrapped 8 dustbins of metal type due to it being unused. £100 and a road trip to Halifax later, we had made friends with the owner of the British Letterpress site, gained several small cases of type, some ink & rollers and 2 tabletop Adana presses to tinker about with. The kit has travelled with us through 7 studio moves and now forms part of our communal equipment at The Engine House, our studio at Islington Mill in Salford, which we share with 10 other creative friends."
