I began printing in 1997 under the imprint Trouser Press, and changed the name to Littoral Press a couple of years later. After earlier pursuits such as construction work, horse training, and large-format photography, being a book artist and letterpress printer feels like the ideal blend of words and image, craft and physical labor.
The work of the press concentrates on poetry but includes many genres, from wedding invitations to bat mitzvah announcements to printing on unusual substrates like erasers. I have printed in numerous languages, including Spanish, French, Hebrew and Arabic. Please contact me if you have a project in mind; I’ll be glad to discuss it with you. I also teach letterpress printing and bookbinding to students from age seven to … whatever! Look for my classes at the San Francisco Center for the Book; occasionally I take on private students at my Richmond studio.
