Display signs were made in the stockroom
on a hand set type, ink, and press.
In one high school the school newspaper was
set and printed on a similar printing press.
Reading the set type was something I found
was “natural” for me to do.
prompt: upside down (Robert Johnston image and poem)
by Katabela Wilson
Whatever else I had in mind for a prompt today
got washed away when I saw this.
The wonderful upside down picture
of the questioning silver eye.
How have you felt, been, seen things “upside down”
in your own experience
learned at typesetting table
reading upside down
easy peasy ~ what fun it is
making signs at Woolworth’s
