Lino Letterpress Book

The lino / letterpress book is very lovely indeed. Very limited edition of 56 only. This one has become a collaborative creation with my partner in Shed Press Publications, Amelie Genestine-Charlton. After I designed it, and printed the lino, and letterpress pages and cover, Amelie has very cleverly worked out the binding technique. Here are a few photos of the process. Better photos to come.

Very simple, satisfying letterpress covers in recycled greeny/black card:

The covers were hand printed in our flat-bed adana press, like so:

Type in chase

LOTS of cat lino covers

Then on each one of the 6 pages I printed from my hand-engraved lino block, creating the cat circus sea scape.

Then a short letterpress summary, and important part of the cat circus to remember was printed on one of the pages in red and silver ink.

Built together like a beautiful star fruit.
