Leszek Knyrek, a Polish bookbinder for 25 years and currently a student in Book and Paper conservation at West Dean (England), has a kickstarter for his really beautiful calendar featuring some of his 60+ nipping press collection. He calls it his “a bit late” calendar. The photography is really well done, and his collection amazing. I’m mainly familiar with US and UK models, there are some really elaborate European ones in the images. Full disclosure: he sent me a free copy of the calendar. But I’m looking forward to purchasing it for the next four years, maybe more if his collection keeps expanding!

I only have two presses and felt like I was in danger of becoming a “collector” if I buy another. This is reassuring and gorgeous.
Send photos when you have a dozen!
I should have said, what’s wrong with being a collector 😛
I only have 10 or so…. Bill Streeter had a lot of Leszek really has this nailed!!
I have … gulp… one!
