Mark's Print Shack: Video

In the upper corner of this blog there is a picture of the Preludium Printshop. The Shop sits in the middle of an industrial park on the edge of Lewes, the village by the bay, on a river called the Broadkill.

A good friend, Jeanie Greenhaugh who runs 205 Lavinia Street...a gallery and studio in Milton , Delaware, dropped by on Thursday while Ema (daughter) and I were working on a printing project. Jeanie made this video from her visit. So, now you can see Preludium's writer at the print shop where he misspells the old fashion way, with type and chase and wonderfully messy ink. You can also watch Ema in action.


This video is living proof that there is something more in life than following the meanderings of the Anglican Communion.

Drop over to 204 Lavinia Street to see some of Jeanie's other videos, including one on Ema our artist daughter. Thanks Jeanie.

  1. Thanks for putting this online, Mark. I had no idea you really had a working print shop, nor that you had such ... ummmm ... "eclectic" taste in music.

    Will you post the "snakes" poem on your poetry site?

  2. How wonderful! Like Lisa I had no idea that you actually ran a print shop. Another hidden talent. Lee

  3. A lovely video, thank you so much. Made me nostalgic for my library school days (we used an Albion, which makes you feel very grand when you pull the bar and do the actual printing) but also reminds me that I lack the patience and perseverance for serious typesetting and printing. Lovely press. It set me to searching eBay (before memory reminded me of above-mentioned lack of patience). A similar machine - a late 19th c Chandler & Price - is currently on offer. Be interesting to see what it brings. Hope it finds a good home. Thanks again
