Product description


Praise for Letterpress Now:
“I wish that I had such helpful, practical guidance back when I got started. Letterpress Now is a terrific companion to help you get ink onto paper (and have fun in the process).” —Harold Kyle, Co-owner of Boxcar Press and Co-founder of Letterpress Commons
“A much-needed instructional tool for enthusiasts of letterpress. And in the 21st century! Who woulda thought....” —Jim Sherraden, Manager, Hatch Show Print
"I have to say I haven't been more excited about a book in a while...Letterpress Now: A DIY Guide to New & Old Printing Methods by Jessica C. White is really something special...I absolutely LOVE this book as it basically explains everything you wanted to know or maybe even didn't know you wanted to know about letterpress, from deciding on what type would be good for what you need, purchasing one, all the equipment (safety and otherwise) needed to run one and then a heap of awesome projects to make or be inspired by." —Poppytalk
“A thorough guide that would be perfect in the hands of letterpress newcomers, educators, and professionals alike...Jam-packed with information, yet remains concise and well written. It includes plenty of pictures and other visual aids as well, making all the letterpress jargon a bit more digestible...A successful guide to letterpress that is both easy to navigate and learn from.” —Printeresting
