Back in 2011-2013, I traveled around the country in this same truck, visiting small towns and big cities, and spreading the good word about printing the old fashioned way. I was on a mission to share the craft of letterpress with anyone who was willing to listen, while also exploring the outer limits of my own creativity and sense of adventure. The original "Moveable Type" tour spanned 11 months, 47 states, 2 Canadian provinces, 37,000 miles, 190 cities and towns, and countless flat tires and empty gas tanks. Several shorter tours followed prior to parking the truck for what I thought would be for good. But sometimes you just can't see what's up around the bend.
The truck and I are both a few years older, a little bit wiser, and a whole lot rustier, but we're so excited to hit the road again!
