For the centenary of the invention of the Vandercook proof press, the Typophiles published this booklet of writings by Barbara Henry (Harsimus Press), John Kristensen (Firefly Press), Ron Gordon (Oliphant Press), and Michael Peich (Aralia Press). The essays cover the history of the press, its use by fine printers, personal experiences, and tips for printing. Designed by Paul Moxon, the book contains black and white illustrations and a letterpress cover printed at Fameorshame. Moxon printed the wrapper on a Vandercook No. 4 from polymer plates and set the text in Adobe Janson.
