In addition to collecting and dealing in vintage books and ephemera from the Arts and Crafts movement, I also operate Clinker Press — a private letterpress studio. I am interested in printing material relating to the art of printing, as well as the Arts and Crafts movement. Within this focus I print subjects relating to art and literature. Clinker Press is a full letterpress shop with cold and hot metal type (Ludlow and Intertype), hand presses, cylinder presses (one Kluge and one Miehle Vertical press). I am equipped with photopolymer capabilities for illustration, but magnesium plates are made elsewhere. All books are printed letterpress and are of very limited editions.
