Ladies of Letterpress Book
I couldn’t be more thrilled to be included in the gorgeous book published by Ivy Press, Ladies of Letterpress. Written by the founders of the LOLP organization, Kseniya Thomas and Jessica White, the book features women printers from all over the globe. I met Kseniya and Jessica at the 2014 National Stationery Show when I exhibited in the Ladies of Letterpress booth, right before they put the book together. Shortly after NSS they asked for submissions to be included in the book and I was selected!
The book came out in Spring of 2015 and is available at Amazon. It has these very cool tear out posters (one for each printer featured) so you can hang unique pieces up on your walls and is available with two different covers. My favorite is the clean white cover.
I was traveling in New Zealand when the book came out, but I wasn’t expecting to see it so soon (I think NZ received the book sooner than the US?). Anyways, I was at the Auckland Art Gallery and popped in to the gift store. My husband said to me, “Hey, there is that Ladies of Letterpress Book…aren’t you supposed to be in there?” I ran over to the book case and sure enough the book was featured front and center in the gift store’s bookcase. Very exciting! I paged through it with awe and a giant smile on my face. It was beautiful. I was so proud and it truly made my week if not my entire month to see it in Auckland.
Big thanks to Kseniya and Jessica for the opportunity to be featured in this great book and props to all the very talented women printers featured. We are a force to be reckoned with!
