Meet the Presses, Part 3

With this post we’re about one fourth of the way through our look at the Oak Knoll Fest exhibitors. If you haven’t seen them yet, here are Part 1 and Part 2.

Indulgence Press

Wilber H. Schilling, who started his career as a photographer, founded the Indulgence Press in 1992. Named for the medieval indulgences Gutenberg printed to fund the production of his Bible, the books and prints of the press can be found around the world in the collections of the New York Public Library, the British Library, and more. The Indulgence Press is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Kat Ran Press

Since Michael Russem founded it in 1994, the Kat Ran Press has designed books, portfolios, catalogues, and ephemera for 21st Editions, Goshen Editions, The Grolier Club, The Limited Editions Club, Oak Knoll Books, the Veatchs Arts of the Book, and many more. They are located in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Ladies of Letterpress

Ladies of Letterpress is an international trade organization for letterpress printers and print enthusiasts that aims to promote the art and craft of letterpress printing and to encourage the voice and vision of women printers. It was founded by Jessica C. White, owner of Heroes & Criminals Press, and Kseniya Thomas, owner of Thomas-Printers. The Ladies of Letterpress community is continually growing and offers a place to read about adventures in commercial, fine press, art and zine printing, ask for advice and learn from other printers, share resources, and get inspiration.
