Spring Break Day 4: Even Sunnier Thursday

Starting my morning with some spinning. I tried out my flicker to attain a different look with combining the wool. It turned out quite interesting.

Then I made a trip down to Hound Dog Press, owned and operated by Nick Baute and Robert Ronk. It is a full service letterpress shop located at 309 East Market Street. They continue to use machinery that dates back as far as 1892 to as recent as the 1960s. They use the same concept that Johannes Gutenberg invented in 1440, which is the movable type printing press.

My purchases
I also visited the Louisville Visual Art Association
located in the Historic Water Tower. Louisville's Water Tower is the oldest ornamental water tower in the world, dating to 1856.
