Russell Frost – traditional letterpress printing

The latest show at Slate, running from 30 March – 17 May 2014, is an exhibition of Russell Frost’s letterpress creations. Russell runs Hooksmith Press, working with traditional printing methods (no computers!) He is showing a selection of his work, and every item has a story behind it, be it from the Prohibition era, or with a fishing theme (his passion).

You can also find Russell at the E11 Pop-Up craft market on Saturdays during April, in the room behind Slate – so if you like what you see, pop in and buy some!
