Publisher’s Description: 

Access to Tools is a playful book made by letterpress printing copper engravings of various tools. The tools were made by Berylco. Their catalog was printed using these same engravings by my family's printing company for many years. In reprinting them, I inked each by hand, a technique that allows for a certain level of inconsistency. Areas of heavy ink, the rubber roller texture and lap marks all add to the character of the arrangements.
