Letterpress and Life’s Little Gems

Wandering the displays at the Printers Fair at the recent 2012 Ladies of Letterpress Conference reminded me of a nifty pocket book written a few years ago filled with one liners about productively living our lives.  This great instructional guide gave little gems of wisdom and witty truisms such as “be courteous to everyone” or “remember people’s names”.  All good, sound advice.

Lo and behold, I started to notice a few good suggestions and observations at the printers Fair that we can probably all smile over, agree with or be improved by.  So here in a nutshell are interesting life reminders for all of us from our fellow letterpress printers, in beautiful form.
