Interview with Duncan

For the second in our interview series with JTTC club members we thought Mr Duncan Roylance might be a good choice. Duncan is without a doubt the man behind the machine, and by machine I mean a Chandler and Price letterpress machine; “Herbert” to his friends. With Duncan’s help, Herbert is entirely responsible for all of the beautiful letterpress work we’ve been seeing coming out from the folks at Mitchell and Dent. A master of all trades, Duncan has a secret life as a blues musician, a talent for tinkering with old motorbikes, and seems to be determined to invent the next generation of silk screens. Without further ado, Mr Duncan Roylance…

Where are you from?
A time long, long ago, before the tyranny of Federation, when letterpress ruled the known universe.

What’s your day job?
I talk on the phone.

Why screen printing?
Why not screen printing???

Banksy – it’s kind of screen printing…

In a death match between the Queens left and right hand: Sir James Paul McCartney and Sir Michael Philip “Mick” Jagger, who would win and why?
Mick the Lip Jagger; he’s got too much of da blues for pretty boy Pauly. Though these days it’s hard to tell ’em apart…

Finally, show us your work
