Firefly Press - Somerville, MA

Today I sent an e-mail to John Kristensen, asking for a visit/interview.
Anticipation abounds.
Anticipation sated.

Thank you for your inquiry. I am always delighted to show off Firefly
Press to anyone who is interested enough to ask, so certainly, some time
when you are in Boston you must pay a visit. I should probably warn you,
however, if you don't know it already, that the only thing
'experimental' about Firefly is the ongoing experiment of seeing if
traditional letterpress printing and the traditional typographic virtues
can survive in this day and age. The answer so far is that for 26+ years
it can. Survival constitutes success.
Let me know when you will be in this part of the world; we'll set up a
time to get together.
Yours, John Kristensen
