Book Preview: Reinventing Letterpress

Have you all heard about this book, Reinventing Letterpress by Charlotte Rivers?  Reinventing Letterpress is actually the title of the European version – it’ll be released in the United States next month by Chronicle Books under the title Little Book of Letterpress.  It has a lovely introduction with a short history of letterpress and more than 100 profiles of letterpress studios around the world.  I just got my copy and haven’t been able to stop flipping through all the gorgeous letterpress eye candy:

It’s a wonderful book, and would make a sweet gift for anyone with an appreciation for letterpress stationery.  You can pre-order a copy of the upcoming American release here or here.

p.s. I should probably clarify that I actually purchased a copy of this book – it wasn’t a promotional copy.  I’m a genuine letterpress aficionado (just not a practitioner)!

  1. Oh my goodness! I can’t WAIT to flip through my very own copy hundreds of times! Hooray for letterpress!

    Thanks for sharing,

  2. I know nothing about letterpress methods other than that I love letterpress products and I wish I knew how to do it! I would totally buy that book to peruse through.
