Summary
"The process of producing a limited edition letterpress book involves extensive decision-making. What is the overarching idea of the book? Where do we get imagery? How does it relate to the text? What kind of techniques will we use? What is our budget? When is the publication party? These questions are addressed every semester at the Scripps College Press. Since such a plethora of choices is inherent to the book-making process, and indeed to everyday life, we thought that we might focus on the act of making a decision, explore possible consequences of those decisions and even evaluate decisions that are made for you. This led us to our title for this book about life's choices, a pun on joie de vivre." -- Professor Kitty Maryatt, quoted on Vamp & Tramp, Booksellers website (viewed Feb. 14, 2011)
