Abstract:

"Russell Maret explores the future of the private press and the division between the private press and the fine press. The fine printer, often a commercial outfit, leaves proportion, legibility, and craftsmanship as secondary principles, where as the private press printer is possessed with an irrepressible need to make books, containing characteristics of iconoclasm and reverence. Richly illustrated with color images, the book was designed by Russell Maret and printed in an edition of 500 copies at Peter Koch Printers. The cover was printed from antique wood and metal types in the Koch collection."--Oak Knoll website.
