About Clinker Press

Clinker Press is a private letterpress studio and I am interested in printing material relating to the art of printing as well as the Arts and Crafts Movement.

Why Letterpress

Letterpress is the original method of printing from the time of Gutenberg. It is the most palpable and direct method of transferring text and images to paper.

Images of the Studio

The art of letterpress printing is one that invites photography and illustration. To that end, we present imagery by Simone Chaves, daughter of Andre and Ann.
