New Book!


Here is a preview of my newest book! This book has been in the works for years, and the first copies are finally printed and bound. Each book contains two original leaves (4 pages) printed in 1591 and provided by book collector and professor emeritus Herb Johnson. The text was written by typographic expert Mark Argetsinger, and shows the spread or "Peregrinations" of French type in Southern Germany.

I designed, letterpress printed and am binding the books with a luxurious vellum spine. 

This book will be available at Oak Knoll Fest!

Bookbinding Workshop. . . .


I will be offering my bookbinding workshop again this Fall! I only do these classes because I enjoy teaching them, and I know you will enjoy it too, not to mention, you get to take home a really nice product at the end.

Make a Journal or Sketchbook is 4 sessions, held from 5:30-7:30  on 10/11, 10/18, 10/25, 11/1 at A. J. Smith Elementary School in Union Springs, New York.
*Please note that the Union Springs CSD flyer incorrectly lists the workshop as 6 sessions.


In this class you will get to make a blank hard-cover book to take home! We will start by making our own decorative paste papers using acrylic paints and wheat starch. Next we will sew the pages together using thread and traditional bookbinding techniques. Finally, we will construct the covers using our decorated paper, and attach them to our books. At the end you will have a beautiful hand-made book and the knowledge to repeat the process on your own.

Materials Fee of $20 payable to the instructor will be collected during the first session. All materials will be provided. Registration fee is $25.

To sign up, please call or e-mail Lisa Winters (315) 889-7102 x2202

New . . .


I am very excited to show this, my newest letterpress broadside! It features a full color letterpress halftone, not an easy thing to do, and metal type. 
This broadside, Sonnet 117, will be showcased in the Oxford University Bodleian Libraries' Shakespeare celebration. #154sonnets
