a letter/press, a studio, a place where coming apart is part of the art of coming together and there’s always music
and the letters ◉l e tT e R s ❆ L E Tt Er S❊ themselves have form, and play
have sound, and ideas, before they are given assignment
each letter has heft, and posture, before it is given ink and put to paper, before it meets the press
each press with non-negotiable demands, scent & music, rhythm and phrasing of its own
it is a trick to think the words were already fixed and ordered
