Popular Kinetics Pop-Up Press was founded as an artist's press in 1991. Our goal is to reveal the wonder of the book form through artist's editions and presentations, and to teach functional design, creative writing, and problem-solving through the making of books and pop-ups.

The Cranky Press is a private press devoted to publishing the work of smart, cynical curmudgeons whose astute observations of human nature provide ample and amusing material with which to learn the craft of letterpress. 
Ladies of Letterpress is a trade group devoted to the art and industry of letterpress printing. Membership is open to everyone.

At Letterpress Works we print only by letterpress, using metal type and plates, onto the finest paper and card stock.The end product is distinctive: It is tactile, it is permanent, it stands apart from the mass produced fare of todays ‘copy shop’

Just like Gutenberg we cast all our own type from molten type metal, but no longer in the hand mould. We use Monotype, Intertype and Ludlow casting machinery from the 1960s, rescued from the scrapman over the last 20 years. Our ‘newest’ press dates from that time and our oldest and most prized press is a pre war Victoria platen once owned by Will Carter, the fine press printer and type designer, the founder of the Rampant Lions Press.
