Intro to Printing

So, I've been interested in letterpress printing lately.  With that in mind I borrowed a book called 'Printing for Pleasure' by John Ryder.  It was a good beginning book and it makes me wish I had the money to go out and get a press.  I'll have to go find some more books on the subject or better yet, a job/apprenticeship at a bookbindery/letterpress printer.  I really want a change in careers.

My girlfriend is quite the writer and it would be fun to have our own little private press.  She's into the graphic arts thing so I think it would be something fun for her too.  My main interest is in book binding.  Maybe in the future a little side buisness could be set up, if not it'll still be fun :)
