This book explores letterpress printing in the twenty-first century. By looking at recent developments in letterpress and exploring art made by several influential international artists, this catalogue shows many facets of fine press printing such as typography, book design, binding, and papermaking.

It examines the cause of the radical change in the letterpress medium and investigates the rebirth of letterpress printing as an art. By examining some key practitioners, the book brings to light the background behind the rebirth of the letterpress medium. Richly illustrated in color, the catalogue illustrates the work of Didier Mutel, Russell Maret, the Ladies of Letterpress, Peter Rutledge Koch, and many others.

Produced in conjunction with the exhibition of the same title that was organized by Betty Bright and Jeffrey Rathermel, Executive Director, Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
