JOHN S. FASS & THE HAMMER CREEK PRESS.
by Burke, Jackson and Eugene M. Ettenberg
Limited to 100 copies, printed from Fournier and Perpetua types at The Stinehour Press. Binding by Judi Conant. Typography by Jerry Kelly. John De Pol's original Hammer Creek woodcuts printed by David Pankow at the Cary Library Press. Foreword by Aveve Cohen. John Fass was a gifted printer, freelance book designer, and typographer who began the Hammer Creek Press in 1950 in his off-hours at home, printing on a small iron Hughes & Kimber press and a wood press that he himself constructed. "John Fass avowedly prints for pleasure. There are mighty few who, upon seeing his books, booklets, bookplates, and other printed pieces, do not in turn get a sense of pleasure from his work." The book includes a checklist of the Hammer Creek Press from 1950-61, as well as tipped-in reprints of Fass's work. Special cord-tied booklet of color illustrations inserted at back. With the bookplate of John DePol.
