Jessie Miller - Letterpress

Jessie Miller prints in her studio in the border market town of Oswestry in North Shropshire.

Using a treadle printing press dating from 1907 antique and modern printing blocks are brought to life. Metal letters – or ‘type’ – old and new is selected and arranged to create quirky messages and unique designs. Each card is printed individually using hand mixed shades of traditional rubber based inks.

The letterpress technique produces beautiful results, with the designs pressed into thick card. A now specialist technique, few places in the country have the equipment or expertise to print letterpress, making Jessie Miller Letterpress truly special.
