Short Run Books

We are able to produce short run books. Hand composited, letterpress printed on to any type of paper including handmade. This creates a unique item which when completed, is sent to a specialist bookbinder for finishing.

As compositing by hand is a traditional skill this is not a job that can be rushed. If you have something that requires this type of skill please contact us to discuss.
