Greenboathouse Press - a visit

Added on by Andrea Pennoyer.

I had an excellent afternoon at Greenboathouse Press. Thank you, Jason for your time. You're busy!

Left is Jim Rimmer's old (and rare) Monotype SuperCaster now owned by Jason Dewinetz who refurbished it himself (!!). Such a project was highly discouraged by veteran printers but he was not dissuaded.

The last time I saw this beast in action I was...a lot younger. It was in Peter Cocking's Design for Print class at ECIAD. We all went out to New West and had I known then how special that visit was and how relevant it was to my future I would have taken greater care to absorb every minute. Funny that I do have a very clear memory of the SuperCaster. It will cast some special type again soon enough.
