In late spring 2009 I received an email from Charlotte Rivers asking me if I would contribute to her then-upcoming book. It took me nothing short of a nanosecond to respond with a resounding "YES". I've been chomping at the bit to share it with you ever since. I finally got my US copy of the Little Book of Letterpress the other day.
It's an honour to be featured among so many extraordinary printers from around the globe who have far more experience than I do. Charlotte curated her book with the work of a variety of printers. I've followed the work of a few of these talented individuals for some time, but the Little Book of Letterpress introduced me to the incredible craftsmanship of several printers for the first time. From the Foreword by Yee-Haw Industries, to the short history of letterpress and process, pages 1-192 (even page 166-167), it's become my little portable bundle of letterpress inspiration.
