      Call for Letterpress Submissions

      Fellow Letpressers,

      I have recently signed a contract to write a 178 page book tentatively
      called Adventures in Letterpress and will be gathering over 200 images
      of letterpress for the book. The publisher is Mark Batty Publisher ( www.markbattypublisher.com
      ), a well respected design oriented book publisher in both the US
      and the UK who makes high quality books.

      This book will be a large collection of images of letterpress in all
      its varieties from studios nationwide and perhaps even around the
      world. I am now collecting images for the book. We are looking for a
      wide variety of styles so if you know someone who might be interested,
      please pass this information along, I am especially interested in
      finding underground studios/artists that have so far gone under the

      Stage 1 Guidelines for Submission

      1. Please send no more than 6 images of your most innovative

      3. Eventually we will need high quality photos of your work. Please do
      not send work that is no longer available to be photographed using our
      file guidelines (see below). If you are unable to take a professional
      photo of your work, we will be able to take photos of a limited number
      of artist's work provided you can send it to us.

      4. Letterpress can include but is not limited to posters, packaging,
      books, art prints, business cards, greeting cards, etc.

      5. Seriously, don't send us pics of letterpressed wedding related
      items. We're not interested and it lessens your chances of being
