“A pleasure to hold, a delight to read.”
LetterPress Publications is the result of years of planning by author and editor Brian James Freeman.
Our goal at LetterPress Publications is to publish significant works of literature in elegant editions using time-honored methods. These are truly modern special editions crafted with old world charm. Not only will you be proud to display our beautiful books in your office or home library, but our high-quality materials and production techniques create distinguished volumes you can pass down for generations of readers in your family to enjoy.
That doesn’t mean these books are only meant to be looked at, though. Each title is designed with readability in mind. A gorgeous book that cannot be read defeats the entire purpose of a book. That’s why we named ourselves LetterPress Publications: a constant reminder that the wellspring of any publishing venture is the written word.
Our Limited Editions are printed on acid-free archival quality paper and feature a luxurious high-quality binding, hot foil artwork stamping, genuine crafted spine hubs, two-color interior printing, a generous amount of artwork, a sewn-in satin ribbon page marker, marbled or embossed endpapers, and authentic deckled page edges. These volumes are housed in custom-made slipcases wrapped with woven cloth and stamped with hot foil.
Our Lettered Editions feature a three-piece binding of splendid leather and imported cloth, upgraded paper with a textured finish, and precision trimmed page edges to properly absorb the gold or silver gilding. These unique editions are housed in a custom-made, slide-in traycase with hot-foil stamping on the front, spine, and inside of the case.
