Fine and Dirty: Contemporary Letterpress Art

Today, the fine press book is thriving. This kind of artist’s book, whose character derives from the properties and pleasures of craft, has emerged as the leading edge in a field that is attracting working artists and students in increasing numbers. It is time to mark this medium’s resurgence and consider its future arc. This exhibit, organized by the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, assembles work by established and emerging artists, that reflects the best in letterpress books today.
