The industrious, illustrious Mike O’Connor has outdone himself. Not only is he producing a wonderful new monthly Letterpress magazine online, but he has also created a domain to make it easily accessible:

The February Galley Gab is out! Articles include a great story about Jim Daggs’ introduction to letterpress as a hobby at age 12. Daggs is the owner of Ackley Publishing, a commercial printing house with several employees. Mike Anderson’s article on typeface design is a concise introduction into “how it’s done”.

Mike publishes The Galley Gab for the APA, but welcomes and encourages readers from all over. Check it out, and do let Mike know what you think!
