Deus Logos Ex-Press

This blog is an amalgamation of the ongoing escapades of the Last Word Books Friends & Family Printing Project. We've got an old Chandler & Price Platen Press from 1934(?) named Ampersand stuffed into the back of Last Word and three old Kelsey's at Hungry Hollow Farm. Soon we will be letterpressing local poetry broadsides, beer coasters, chapbooks, flyers, LP covers, cd covers, 'zines and whatever else we can come up with.

Choosing a Letterpress Printing Press

Letterpresses can range from 2 to 4,000 pounds and cost from $0 to $10,000. This guide is for the person who wants to get started with letterpress printing and needs a working press instead of a display piece. It is excerpted with permission from the definitive Introduction to Letterpress Printing, available at Fiveroses.org, which covers everything you need to know to start your own press, and has links to all of the reference and other sources mentioned below.
