This series demonstrates a wide array of craftsmanship, ingenuity, and love for the age-old and tactile process of letterpress printing. This 3 pack includes covers by Springtide Press of Tacoma of Washington, Brad Vetter of Louisville, Kentucky and Ben Blount of Evanston, Illinois. 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. Skylab Letterpress of Kansas City, Missouri printed our designs for each book’s flyleaf, including a reproduction of a border from the Bay Psalms Book (1640), thought to be the very first book printed in the American colonies. As each cover is done manually on a letterpress there will be variations in layout and colors.
