About Presses

Many book artists produce work under a press name, especially if they do the actual printing and printmaking themselves. Some presses are known for their letterpress printing, others for offset or digital printing. This list of presses does not represent all presses found in our collection. It simply refers to artists/presses for which we own more than two or three titles.
