Call for Letterpress Submissions
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,
