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 community, and to this effect we regularly assist artists in approaching letterpress and independent publishing tools for their creative process or expanding into self-publishing.

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