Thomas Siemon on the FAG Control 525: ‹I use this press regularly for small editions of wood and linocuts. Especially with woodcuts the adjustable bed is helpful.
I had quite some trouble with the electrics of this machine the old relais seem to be the problem. After cleaning them it works fine.›

About ‹edition carpe plumbum›

Carpe Plumbum is a workshop for letterpress and relief printing, located in the “Spinnerei” in Leipzig – a former Cotton factory
that now hosts artists, designers and galleries.

In the workshop hundreds of typecases and several presses (from 3 FAG proof presses to the 70x100cm “Präsident” Cylinder press) offer varied possibilities for printwork.

I work together with artists and designers, printing cards and small editions, as well as larger editions such as posters and books; for example all the original graphic LUBOK books are printed here. See www.lubok.de for more.

About ‹Grafička radionica ABAco›

Although we are digital printing shop equipped with modern printing, cutting and other finishing equipment, my father is oldschool graphic designer/printer and loves to use old machines that he started bussines with, so occasionally we use FAG Form for printing & proofing artistic posters or other exclusive printing materials and sometimes also for creasing.

Studio: Hand & Eye Letterpress, London, United Kingdom

Phil Abel on the FAG Control 525: ‹The press is used on a near-daily basis, for taking proofs of hand set material for scanning and emailing to customers, taking galley proofs of machine set material from the Composition caster, proofing and correcting interns' setting, and large jobs, or short runs that would otherwise need to be done on the Heidelberg SB cylinder press. Phil started using the FAG in 1992, when Hand & Eye was on the premises of Barnard & Westwood, but bought it outright from them in 2007.›

About ‹Hand & Eye Letterpress›

One of the very few remaining jobbing letterpress printers in the UK, Hand & Eye was started by Phil Abel in 1985, equipped with an Adana 8x5, an Arab treadle platen, a passion for good printing and a pile of typographic journals. The presses are long gone, but the passion remains, and he hopes that we continue, in a small way, the legacy of great twentieth century printers like the Curwen Press. As well as providing a high quality service for our customers, we also print and publish our own fine book editions, and occasionally make our own posters and ephemera. For estimates, sales & enquiries, email phil@handandeye.co.uk.
Also employed at Hand & Eye is Nick Gill, a writer and musician who was lured into letterpress when he wanted to make CD covers. He is the enthusiastic custodian of our Monotype Composition caster and Super caster, which he runs, services and strips down when needed. As well as setting copy for our own jobs on our computer-driven Composition Caster, Hand & Eye Foundry sells founts of type, and various sizes of leading and spacing material. A full list of our matrices is available on our website, and enquiries can be directed to monotype@handandeye.co.uk.
We have 2 week internships that run all year round; applications can be sent to internships@handandeye.co.uk

About ‹R.B. Typolab (BfGZ/ZHdK)›

R.B. Typolab (BfGZ/ZHdK) is a university workshop based in Zürich. It arose from a fusion of two workshops (Werkstätte f. Typographie und Buchdruck BfGZ / Typowerkstatt HGKZ, today ZHdK) in the year 2000.
Rudolf Barmettler uses this workshop as an introduction to typography for first year students of the Visual Communication Department (ZHdK) as well as for interdisciplinary typographic induction weeks of the Department of Design (ZHdK). Additionally he has been been teaching an evening workshop (40 evenings a year) for over 10 years now. BfGZ teacher René Wäger and Gilde Gutenberg teach Polygraf aprentices in the second year. In the workshop there are about 650 cases of lead type, wood type, bakelite type and magnesium type. Besides the 3 FAG proofpresses there there are other pieces of equipment that include a Vandercook Uni IV (Serial 21477), a Heidelberg Platen press, a Giez platen press, some waxing machines, a FAG heavy duty saw trimmer and some more...
Rudolf Barmettler's students mostly produce business cards, invitation cards, flyers, cd-covers, book-covers, posters and poster series, calendars, poetry books, magazines, proofs and lots of printing experiments.
