Friday Studio Dispatch #2: Two Fridays for the price of one!

Day in the Studio series continues… On the 24th — (yeah, I’m catching up to the present, don’t worry!) we put printing for Sideshow on hold, because the inimitable Mary Laird was teaching her 5-day Letterpress Intensive class!  Therefore, all the presses were being quite happily put to work.
