Nah, I don't mind if it becomes more popular. It's just bad news for some of us because it makes everything more expensive.
Kind of like wealthy young hipsters moving into your neighborhood and paving over everything that made it a desirable joint in the first place (which is happening in San Pedro), or the price of Bukowski books and manuscripts rising as his popularity becomes more widespread.
As far as letterpress - or manuscripts - go, a surge in interest is great news if you're on the selling end. Something tells me though, that in 10 years a lot of the people who are into it as a fad will liquidate what they are buying up now, so it all evens out.
And that probably applies to letterpress and Bukowski too. ;)
Collectors of junk, all of us! Lead type fonts, salt and pepper shakers, rare books, spoons from every state...ha. Yep.
