Rusty Maisel - Printer Historian Artist Friend - Art

An 8:30AM call this morning from a dear friend, Ralph (in yellow shirt), almost broke my heart when I learned that I missed the lecture and demonstration on how the Gutenberg press works at Doss Heritage here in Weatherford TX. It was the last day for the public to witness the press and the accompanying exhibit of old Bibles and other manuscripts. That same afternoon at Lorna’s facility, I was 2 hours before 5:30PM, my usual time to fetch Lorna from her work for almost daily, I get to happily swing my golf club better just because of a wide field right at the back of Lorna’s facility that can accommodate at least 20 full size soccer fields! On our way back home, Lorna reminded me about going to Walmart to do our grocery for the week. On the way there, even while we were shopping, and after we shopped, I had the feeling that something was amiss. I was not able to figure it until Ralph Ragsdale called me this morning! I could sense in Ralph’s voice the disappointment of us having missed this rare demonstration much more when he again reminded me that Rusty Maisel would start dismantling the press at Doss Heritage at 10AM for it again conflicted with our portrait taking at Couts Methodist Church! Anyway, Lorna and I decided to go early at Doss Heritage just to briefly view the press being dismantled. We were really not that early for there we found Ralph Ragsdale and Larry Vanhoozer with their grandkids and some other people talking to Rusty Maisel and others watching the manuscript exhibit. I was introduced to Rusty only to casually commence the introduction, history and, eventually, as to how the press works. There’s much more to say from our lengthy talk, but perhaps you have better view the photos Lorna, Larry and I took first before we further discuss the rest of our fun viewing and demo of the press at Doss Heritage. By the way, Doss Heritage is one of the best museums Parker County has in Texas. It is the result of the efforts made my Mary Miller, the Peter Pan of Hollywood during her time. She happens to be the mother of Larry Hagman, the mean “JR” we know in a television series we used to watch on television, “Dallas”. Btw, Lorna and I still made it to the picture taking for the Couts ‘ UMC directory. (to be continued . . . more about this movable type press) - - I was pensively sad after lengthily talking to Rusty about his Gutenberg press for it reminded me so much of my own litho-wooden press that I built some years back, together with two other friends, Tony Gonzales and Sonny Zandueta, when I was into stone printing called "lithography". An unclear photo of it is all I've got but I have a lot of litho-prints to show that came out of that litho-press. By the way, we called it, "Pressy": http://glenlorn.multiply.com/photos/album/51 To view some of my lithographs from Pressy, please click on this link: http://www.myartprofile.com/glenlorn/gallery/7295 More photos/texts from Glenn on Rusty Maisel, Weatherford TX: http://glenlorn2.multiply.com/photos/album/43/4th_Meeting_w_Rusty_Maisel_Weatherford_TX Video on Enduring Word by Rusty Maisel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KqCo651wAk
