Changes

After almost nine years of running Flying Rabbit Press out of my basement studio I’m excited to be moving it into a commercial space. The new studio has lovely natural light, more room, a higher ceiling, and will be open for visits from you. More details about that last bit will be divulged once I’m settled in.

To go with the new digs the press has a new logo, and will have a new website, too. For now, this site has gotten a quick facelift (you may have noticed).

As you might expect, many weeks have been spent preparing for the move and readying the new space. Friday was a big day; the presses made the move with the help of a skillful team of professionals who are used to transporting equipment that is even heavier than my 1100 lb baby. Here are some pictures of the process:
