E-catalogue 56: New England Private Presses

E-catalogue 56: New England Private Presses

It’s easy to take for granted the deep impact the New England region has had upon the shape of American fine printing. Indeed, this region can boast some of the most recognizable names in the printing arts: Baskin, Dwiggins, Goudy, Moser, Rogers, Werner, to list but a few.
The recent acquisition of a private collection has given us a fine representation of the fine press work from the six New England states, and we are pleased to offer this selection at the beginning of a season that is quintessential for this area.
Enjoy the bounty.
E-catalogue 55: 20% Off Continental Press Books

E-catalogue 55: 20% Off Continental Press Books

As a follow-up to our list of press books published in the British Isles, we present an offering of fine printing produced in Continental Europe between 1920 and the close of the twentieth century. What can be found by clicking the link below is a nice cross-section of books bearing the Bremer Press imprint, as well as that of Hans Mardersteig’s Officina Bodoni, among many others.

When viewed in conjunction with our previous list, one can see how profoundly printers, typographers, and designers influenced one another across the Channel: from the diffusion of the Arts & Crafts aesthetic to many German fine presses during the era leading up to the Second World War, to Christian Heinrich Kleukens's homage to the Doves Press in his Ernst Ludwig Presse edition of Shakespeare’s Works.

This list serves as a gentle reminder that however divided the world may seem, there is unity all around if one simply looks hard enough.

E-catalogue 54: 20% Off Presses of the British Isles

E-catalogue 54: 20% Off Presses of the British Isles

Amid the noise emanating from recent news about the countries that comprise the British Isles, we offer a small oasis in the form of the following e-catalogue, celebrating the region's many contributions to fine printing. We have gathered together examples of fine printing from across the principal countries of the British Isles; and although this list is heavily weighted toward English presses, we have included work from the Foulis Press of Scotland, the Dolmen Press of Ireland, and the Gregynog Press of Wales.

E-catalogue 53: Edward Gorey Sale

E-catalogue 53: Edward Gorey Sale

Summer in Massachusetts is synonymous with Cape Cod. It is also the sale season. In light of this confluence, we are pleased to present our summer sale list, the subject of which is the Cape's best-known resident, Edward Gorey. The majority of his works in our shop are now on sale for 40% off, including newly added groupings of ephemera, calendars, periodicals, and more.

E-catalogue 52: Miniature Books

E-catalogue 52: Miniature Books

Our first miniature book list in several years, this e-catalogue includes featured items ranging from the Alembic Press’s handsome Te Deum Laudamus to a 19th-century octagonal manuscript Koran, highlighted in gold and housed in a silver box. We also produced a second list of over 100 miniature books priced below $200, which can be viewed here.

E-catalogue 51: New Children's Books

E-catalogue 51: New Children's Books

The books we read as children shape how we see the world. Whether it is an illustration that forever captured a certain character, or the manner in which the story itself is told, these helped us hold the narrative in our developing minds, with lasting impact. In view of this, we present our latest e-catalogue, the first part of which is devoted to original art by Barry Moser for several of the children's books he illustrated. Moser is the featured artist in our gallery, and his detailed, character-driven watercolors add a certain playfulness, even hilarity, to his children’s books. About two-thirds of this list is comprised of recent acquisitions: from illustrated chapbooks with their simple stories, to the visual magic of movable books.
E-catalogue 50: Arion Press and Limited Editions Club

E-catalogue 50: Arion Press and Limited Editions Club

The following list contains a cross-section of works from both the Arion Press and the Limited Editions Club.

E-catalogue 49: Finely Printed Shakespeare

E-catalogue 49: Finely Printed Shakespeare

Although no census exists for how many Shakespeare titles have been printed in fine press editions over the centuries, one imagines that number to be significant. After all, Shakespeare’s influence on English language and culture is so deep and wide-ranging that to state it borders on a tautology.
 
We are pleased to present an e-list featuring a small piece of Shakespeare's oeuvre in fine print. It is a selection as wide-ranging as Shakespeare’s influence, representing presses from Doves to Caliban and sizes ranging from the sublime to the half-inch!
