I am so over the moon to share my first episode of Cemented Ink with the Founder of Bruno Press, Mary Bruno; we discussed numerous subjects throughout this podcast which I have referenced for you below to follow along.
Also, kindly note in the middle of this interview to honour the release of Tony Moore’s Let Your Heart Begin to Sing, today Tony has graciously allowed me to share it with all of you today; moreover, that fun music you heard at the beginning at the end is also courtesy of Tony.
Enjoy the audio & optic feast!

And the poem I mentioned I was going to write… here it is…
Inked and ready for the world Please touch me I want you to feel the textured parchment I was pressed into I was designed by Mary Bruno you know, if you ever sliced her open as writers would bleed letters and syntax Mary would spill typeset letters and printers ink Sit down, pour a whiskey listen, to my origin story I was printed on an antique press before anything was placed onto me the machine had to be prepped although before that inks need to be blended for the cool hues you see all over me The ink is placed in small globs on the roller, and then the magic happens imagine this for a moment please a large storm cloud, that becomes thinner and thinner, as it is squeezed through a roller a colour that spreads all over to create the perfect fine texture Dreamy landscapes fortify artistic impressions in a fashion conducive to the truest form of comprehension that art genuinely turns my world
