The Guardian looks in on Hand and Eye Letterpress

FPBA member Phil Abel of Hand and Eye Letterpress was written up in Saturday’s Guardian. The writer, Jon Henley, spends most of his time explaining letterpress but it’s good to see presses covered in the mainstream media.

While we’re talking about Hand & Eye, did you know they are one of the printers of the Letterpress Shakespeare for the Folio Society?  Here’s their Hamlet:

These books are printed on Zerkall mould made paper in an edition of 3750. Most titles in the series run around $600. (In my next life I am going to be born rich instead of good-looking.) Hand & Eye do superlative jobbing work and have printed books for a number of clients including Oak Tree Fine Press. Take some time to look at Hand & Eye’s work on their website and subscribe to their blog.
