Product Description


Chapters on technical aspects of presses, printing, good studio practice, relief matrices, and (please note) contemporary processes, are written in accessible language with useful information and tips that can only be gained from experienced practitioners. Enhanced by a fascinating array of images of prints, ephemera and artists' books by letterpress and book arts practitioners around the globe. -- Angie Butler, Book Artist, UK PRINTMAKING TODAY In short, the book is a solid overview - not overly in-depth in any one area, it is a suitable primer for those new to the field or in search of guidance to help teach others ... For those interested in understanding the whole mind-body process and experience of letterpress printing as a fine art form, this book delivers -- Camden M. Richards, co-owner of Studio Ephemera, California, USA The Book Club of California, The Quarterly News-Letter, vol. LXXIX

Useful and inspiring! 25 Jan. 2014
By Theresa Mason - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am a letterpress enthusiast and enjoyed this book cover to cover. It considers history and equipment and presents color photographs on almost every page of letterpress art from many artists as well as "how to" photographs. It thoughtfully considers how to plan and design letterpress art as well as what it takes to execute a project. It is obvious that the authors are experienced teachers and love their medium.

Such a good book 10 April 2014
By Jacob Massey - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I work on the letterpress 4 or 5 days a week, teach classes and have students that ask so many questions on what everything is and how to do things, this book helped bridge the gap from my knowledge to true professionals knowledge.

Recommended to anyone working on, near, or with letterpress machines.
