An Alphabet Book Of Sorts / Soon To Be Hot Off The Press / Pre-Order Today

Wells College Press and Starshaped Press are co-publishing a limited edition alphabet book. Each letter is made up of printers’ ornaments composed by hand and letterpress printed from metal at Starshaped Press in Chicago. Wells College Press will be doing all of the binding. The design and lock up of tiny ornaments for every letter in the alphabet is unimaginable but Starshaped Press has made it happen. The results are absolutely beautiful. This is a book that everyone will appreciate. Expect to receive your copy around Spring 2015. To pre-order now click here.  The images below will help you understand the work that has gone into this project. To the left is a print of the prospectus and to the right is the metal type lock up used to print the prospectus. (A human did all of this with their two hands) A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Reserve a copy today before they sell out!
