Kristen Ley was determined to find a letterpress. So she met with T.J. Ray of the AG Museum Print Shop, who connected her to Ed Inman, a notable letterpress artist, to learn all about the craft. She eventually tracked down a 1925 Chandler + Price Platen Press in Kentucky, and drove it back to Mississippi (all 900 pounds!).So it's no surprise when Kristen tells us she loves to challenge herself as an artist, designer and thinker. She lives by the words "be kind and work hard," but also understands the importance of balance. How do we know? She loves a good rainy Saturday because it means she can finally sleep in.
