See my Peter Chasseaud - Artist & Writer blog (http://peterchasseaud.blogspot.com) for more about these two images of my current work at the Press - a foot-square Valentine, and a version of Moxon's 17th Century capital 'E'.

Typography Books, Artists' Books, Printing, Artists' Prints

The Tom Paine Printing Press and Press Gallery is now building up a range of new and secondhand books on typography and graphic design, private presses, fine press books, artists' books, and artists' prints as well as letterpress and line-block material printed by Peter Chasseaud on the wooden hand-press (Common Press). I've just printed a valentine card about a foot square, using wood type on Khadi hand-made paper.

We will also be stocking books on printing history, methods and processes - including letterpress, lithography, etching, relief printing, etc.
