Sponsored by the Grolier Club
Plain Wrapper Press Redux publisher Mark E. Fischer, with Grolier Club member, printer and designer Jerry Kelly, and Plain Wrapper Press printer/publisher Gabriel Rummonds, will discuss the recent revival of a decades-old handpress known for its finely printed and illustrated limited editions of poetry and prose by contemporary authors. The original Plain Wrapper Press was founded in 1966 by Rummonds, who became one of the foremost handprinters of the 20th century, and who is also a professor and author of Printing on the Iron Handpress, Nineteenth-Century Printing Practices and the Iron Handpress, and Fantasies & Hard Knocks: My Life as a Printer. Fischer, founder of the fine press Stamperia Ponte Pietra, has teamed up with Rummonds and Kelly, who is designing Plain Wrapper Press Redux editions.
