Last Call: ‘Roman Workbenches’ Letterpress Edition


We’ve just put up for sale the final 150 copies of “Roman Workbenches” in letterpress. This is the last time you’ll see them on our site. We’re not reprinting the letterpress book.

The book is available to both domestic and international customers.

What about the two missing lines? All the copies have been personally repaired by me or Megan Fitzpatrick. We glued in the two missing lines on paper left over from the press run.

For those of you who cannot afford the letterpress version, I am working on an expanded edition that we will print on our regular offset printing presses that should be released at the end of 2017 or the beginning of 2018.

  1. “We’re not reprinting the letterpress book” Ever? or at this time? Thanks

    You originally thought that there may be some unbound sets for those of us who might want to bind the book ourselves. Is that off the table?


    • Nope. I have a stack of sheets here at the storefront – enough to make 30 books or so. I have just been too insanely busy getting ready for Handworks to do anything but look at them and suffer some anxiety.

      I leave for Germany shortly, but after I return I should have some time to sort them out, put them in tubes and offer them to people who want to bind the book themselves.

    Maybe I’m a nerd but binding the book myself sounds fun. I’ll be looking for these to go on sale.
