One of the chief benefits of living in Windsor is the relative easy access of big-city amusements across the border in Detroit. One such amusement is the Eastern Market, the USA’s largest historic market. Despite the fact that it is a mere 30 minute drive from my house, I’d never been, so my brother and I went to meet a Detroit-dwelling friend there. We had no real purpose in mind, aside from seeing what was there.
I quickly found a new purpose.
Through the spitting rain I spotted what appeared to be a printer’s manicule affixed to the side of a brick building located in an out-of-the-way side street. I went to investigate and found a delightful little print shop, which basically made the whole trip worthwhile.
Naturally, I couldn’t leave without procuring a souvenir for myself! I picked up a cool bookish letterpress poster from Kennedy Prints.
So if you happen find yourself in Detroit at Eastern Market, scout some locations beforehand and don’t miss to Signal-Return!
