Letterpress Printing ABC
Vancouver, British Columbia:: Heavenly Monkey,, 2004.. Edition of 50. 3 x 3" miniature, 57 pages. Printed on Reg Lissel's handmade HM Text paper. Sewn into a woven case structure based on the "Gospel of Mary" binding, developed during a week-long class with Claire Van Vliet. A miniature ABC book designed, printed and bound by David Clifford of Black Stone Press. It features 15-line wood type, printed in various pastel colors, with each letter accompanied by a word or phrase from the letterpress printer's lexicon. Though Clifford has been printing for over 50 years - he was among the last generation to go through the formal seven-year apprenticeship system in England in the 1950s - Letterpress Printing ABC is just his second book. In 1998 he printed a narrative series of linocuts by Vancouver artist Carel Moiseiwitsch, titled Forgotten.
