ROTOVISION AND CHRONICLE BOOKS RELEASE NEW BOOK SURVEYING CONTEMPORARY PRACTICES IN LETTERPRESS
Yee-Haw's own Adam Hickman Ewing prepared the foreword for a new book compiled by Charlotte Rivers, available from RotoVision as Reinventing Letterpress in the UK and from Chronicle Books as The Little Book of Letterpress in the USA. The first few pages of the book give a brief history of letterpress printing and go on to provide a layman's look into traditional and more modern printing practices. The remainder of the book spotlights the work of over 100 letterpress studios across the country and over the sea. More on the book from RotoVision can be found here.
