The Occasional Print Club was formed in November 2008, in the corner of a thronging London ale house behind Fleet Street, by myself and three other typographers; Jonathan Kielty, Pat Randle and Ross Shaw. We were full of energy and enthusiasm, having spent that day at the excellent Letterpress: A Celebration conference at the St Bride Library.
The inaugural meeting of the OPC took place in late January 2009 around the bed of a Western proofing press at The Whittington Press by the kind invitation of the proprietor, John Randle. A commemorative letterpress poster was designed, typeset and printed during the two days we spent at Whittington. Further meetings are planned to be held in our respective letterpress workshops, across this green and pleasant land, over coming months and years.
