This series demonstrates a wide array of craftsmanship, ingenuity, and love for the age-old and tactile process of letterpress printing.
Continuing a tradition embossed into the history of American letterpress printing, the layouts, themes and messages are highly personal statements about heritage, geography, tradition, and social issues, and they also demonstrate the diversity and strength of today’s letterpress community.
Please Note: Most of the artists we worked with created two designs of each book. See the images to view the different design variations from each artist. At this time we are unable to fulfill requests for specific designs inside the 3-Packs.
