Printer - A Hope And A Brayer
Photograph - Hdr Photography
The device sitting on the table is called a Brayer. A brayer is a roller, that applies the ink to your typeface. To start the process, you want to take some ink and smooth it until it's free of all lumps. Then you push the brayer into the ink and make sure the surface of the roller is totally covered in ink. Next you spread the ink over the typeface that was set up earlier, and hope that you covered it well enough to transfer the copy directly to paper. You have to be quick, and only when the ink is wet. The device that holds the typeface is then loaded into a press and it's squished onto the paper. Then you repeat this over and over until you made all your copies.
