A few weeks back I was scrolling my twitter feed when some striking marbling stopped me in my tracks. The photographs were progress shots from Emily Hancock’s binding process of her latest release a gorgeous letterpress printed edition of Michael Delp’s poetry.
This limited edition chapbook is accompanied by a beautiful linoleum block illustration by Lana Lambert. The poems are hand-set in Bembo, newly cast in metal by The Bixler Letterfoundry. The book is letterpress printed on Emily Hancock’s venerable 1909 Golding Pearl foot-treadled press. Learn more and pre-order here
