Announcement   Ker-bloom! is a life history letterpress printed in installments.

I've recently been digging through the archives to satisfy a collector's requests. Since I've got all those boxes open, if you'd like to put in a special request to fill in some gaps in your collection (especially since this zine goes back for 20 years), let me know and I'll create a listing for you.

Now's the time to start planning invitations for your fall/winter wedding. For more information on my custom work, visit deepinkletterpress.com

I've subscribed to Ker-bloom more years than I can recall, and every issue is consistently full of heart and thoughtful writing, a tactile zine in pocket-sized form.

About

A life history, letterpress printed in installments.

I started printing Ker-bloom! letterpress zine in 1996 in a carriage house behind my former professor's Bay Area Victorian home. I have since then used two other presses in several different locations to keep my zine going every other month.

In addition to my zine, I also do custom letterpress work as well as handmade note cards.

Currently I print on a Vandercook Model 4 letterpress in Berkeley, California. I am one block away from the train tracks and also one block away from some of the best samosas I have ever eaten.
