Overview

Who can resist the tactile charm of letterpress? Not many, judging by its ever-rising popularity among artists and designers working with old-school printing methods. The Ladies of Letterpress features the best work of the members of Ladies of Letterpress, an international organization that champions the work of women printers.

Valuable as a handy resource, it includes a wide range of pieces, from greeting cards to broadsides and posters, printed in a variety of type and illustration styles. Each piece is accompanied by details of paper, inks, and press used in its printing, and a profile of its printer. Whether you're drawn to elegant greeting cards, humorous note cards, or calendars and posters, you're sure to find inspiration in this volume. And when you do, there are eighty detachable pages just begging to be pinned up.
