Editioning, Education, Collaboration

Deep in the Green Mountains of Vermont, Ruth Stone House owns and operates a classic Vandercook SP20, as well as an early 20th century Charles & Price Platen press. Our dedication to the art of the printed word takes us into indie book publishing, printmaking, artful book covers, broadside editions, chapbooks and lots else!

An important aspect of our mission is education, and to this effect we regularly teach letterpress workshops and assist artists in approaching letterpress for their creative process or expanding into self publishing. Setting type takes time and care, introducing a new respect for the printed word. Setting your own work is an act of respect for your craft, and setting another’s work is an act of praise.

Take a look at our offerings in the shop or contact us for more information about upcoming workshops, or collaborating to print your next project.
