Watch Wayne Davis from Artisan Press at work and his unofficial dual job description as mechanic and printer make perfect sense. The four letterpress presses he operates, one of which is a 1898 Challenge Gordon hand feed platen, requires both mechanical and aesthetic prowess. Along with wife Merran, Wayne operates a boutique printing process that uses, among other things, handmade cotton paper produced by Euraba Artists & Papermakers, a group of indigenous artists located in Northern NSW.
