John S.Fass and the Hammer Creek Press (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


John Fass and His Work at the Hammer Creek Press are practically unknown today except to a small group of devoted cognoscenti. Unlike Rogers, Updike, or Dwiggins, Fass was essentially a private printer, working alone at his own pace. What he did was done for his own pleasure. But his work, small in size and issued in minuscule editions, was exquisite and executed with impeccable taste. He was a genius at the arrangement of type, ornaments, and wood engravings. Every piece he produced was a small gem, for Fass had the time, skill, and materials to print everything by hand patiently and perfectly. No wonder the emblem he chose for his press was a turtle. In this lovely little volume, with its text printed letterpress and its plates in four solid colors, we cart discover not only Fass's life and work, but through the efforts of the late, beloved Herman Cohen, a complete checklist of his output. This is our bijou of the year, issued in an edition of 1,000 copies and directed at our loyal constituents who know good work when they see it.
