If you have ever seen one of Jeff Macklin’s cards or woodcuts, you can tell this is a man who lives and breathes type. Check out his antique press at his next open house – he even gives demonstrations from time to time. Letterpress is a lovely art form that is having a resurgence of late. I like Jeff ‘s work and he works really hard, plus he’s one of the most community-minded people in town. My favourite’s are his woodcuts on boxwood, but he designs and prints beautiful custom cards, invitations and the like for those special occasions.
He also does interesting little landscape paintings with black ink patterns, unlike anything I’ve seen. His work gets just better and better.
