À Outrance--Ruscombe letterpress art edition

I'm thrilled to be a part of the group of 17 design binders chosen to create a binding for a special edition of one of Philip Pullman's stories. Published by Oak Tree Fine Press, the special letterpress edition has been printed on a Heidelberg Press on Ruscombe Mill handmade paper. The group of bindings will be on display at the Bodleian Library, Oxford University 15th - 18th December. The unique bindings, signed by the author, are available for purchase through a silent auction. All profits from the sale of these books go to organizations assisting children living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. View more information and bid on any of these fantastic books here.

And check out more photos of the binding I created here.

Letterpress Chapbook Covers

The new chapbook, Omnivore by Allan Peterson, will be released by Bateau Press in the coming month. I designed and printed the covers on the letterpress from photopolymer plates. I also digitally typeset the interior. Edition size is 300 copies. These are hand sewn with a simple pamphlet stitch.

Letterpress Packaging for Sedimental Records

I designed this concertina cd packaging structure for Sedimental Records' latest release from the band Area C. The concertina expands to allow easy access to two sleeved discs. The outer cover and sleeves are all printed letterpress with silver ink from photopolymer plates onto French Paper. Erik Carlson of Area C executed all of the artwork. The edition size is 500 copies. Paper engineering, printing and assembly by Shelter Bookworks.

You can now order a copy of this cd and listen to a track from the release at Sedimental's website

More pictures from 21st Editions

I posted a bit about this project I completed in February for 21st Editions. I just received these professional photos from the publisher of the work and wanted to share them. I was honored to work on these books which featured beautiful prints from artists like Sally Mann and Vik Muniz. I constructed 72 books and 20 boxes for the edition. Each book contained a nickel-plated photogravure plate as well as a photogravure print.

Bateau, Issue 2.2

This is the literary journal Bateau, Issue 2.2 for which I designed and letterpress printed a two-color cover from photopolymer plates using soy ink on Insulation Pink paper (one of French Paper's new FSC certified papers in their Construction line). Copies are available for purchase from Bateau. There are many great poems inside as well as drawings from the talented Joshua Vrysen.

Time Made Visible

This is a book designed by Neil Donnelly, a recent graduate student in Yale's graphic design program. The book documents the thesis presentations of a group of graduate design degree candidates. Each photograph in the book is sized according the the length of time it was visible in an individual's presentation. 1 second = .5 square inches. The resulting foredge of the book is subtly striking and thought provoking.
