Comments

A charming book about the printer Jane Grabhorn based on a talk by the printer Ward Ritchie which he gave as part of the Goudy Lecture series at Scripps College, Claremont, California. Ritchie later converted his talk into this book, the 25th publication of his Laguna Verde Imprenta. This copy, unlike many, is signed by Ritchie on the colophon page with a small ink notation below "WR 25." The colophon states "Perhaps some seventy copies have survived this printing by Ward Ritchie on the Albion hand press of Laguna Verde Imprenta . . ."
