Inky Fingers: Works by Small and Fine Presses
On view at Center for Book Arts April-June 1994
Organized by Brian Hannon.
This exhibition featured books produced by small, fine presses from North America and Europe. Most of the books were printed in a limited, signed edition of less than 500, employing letterpress printing, archival papers and archival bindings. Other works focusing on unique physical structures, typography or unusual materials were also included. The 18 pp. pamphlet-stitched catalogue incorporated a letterpress printed cover and images.
