The Printer's Devil & The Little Bear

In July and August I stayed with Ursula Freeman at the Redlake Press in Shropshire, where she guided me through a two-month apprenticeship in traditional printing methods, collaborating on a limited-edition letterpress book of poetry and photography.

Our hard-won 30 pages made use of a brand-new Epson R800 with which we could print to archival quality, a Vandercook Proofing Press, my own linocuts, photographs and rigorously-edited tiny poems.

The Printer's Devil & The Little Bear is presented in a choice of two formats – the Solander box as shown, by Salisbury Bookbinders (£50.00), or a lined folder (£30.00)

This project was realised with the assistance of Arts Council England.
