meet big red

This was a monumental week for Dear Lola! Meet Big Red, a 1927 Chandler & Price press that was saved from a scrapyard by her last owner and completely refurbished. I'm sure she's very tired. She took a ride on a trailer from Las Vegas to Los Angeles at 4AM this morning. Now I will be able to give her a loving home with lots of good printing projects to follow. For now, she's sitting in a garage while I get my studio situation squared away. Knowing she's sitting there waiting for me is totally surreal since I've been searching for a press for an entire year. All the stars aligned for me and Big Red and I just had to jump at the chance to own this 1700 pound beauty. Isn't she pretty?
