Lindsay Lusby's Profile
Hello there! My name is Lindsay Lusby and I am the mind and face and hands behind Thread Lock Press. I have many loves but chief among them are poetry, letterpress printing, bookbinding, hand-sewing, and typewriters. I love the machinery of words. The keys and springs and cranks and cast-iron metal of it. And I love the softness of handmade and mouldmade papers and fabrics with vintage patterns and imperfect hand-stitched threads. I see Thread Lock Press as a way to combine and celebrate all of these things in various manifestations.
I first started printing with antique letterpress and bookbinding under Master Printer Mike Kaylor while I was an undergrad at Washington College in 2006. It was dirty and tedious and my hands always came away covered in a thick lead dust and I loved it. I graduated with a BA in English and Creative Writing and a deep urge to make words into tactile things…
