|Notes: "Because its fine book work is essentially hand work (hand set types, printed on dampened hand-made paper, on an 1830 Acorn-Smith hand press, with hand bindings by Dorothy Allen) a handpress device came naturally. In this design by Louis LeLoup the stalk of mistletoe indicates the labor-of-love notion of the press, and the husband and wife printers; the branch of flax is an allusion to the use of rag paper." © James Lamar Weygand|
