Summary
"Passions in Print weaves the colorful story of New Mexico book artists, their dedication to a timeless craft, and their extraordinary contribution to the literature of the region. Together with more than 150 photographs, the narrative sheds light on the small press and its printers, a little known chapter in the much-published history of Southwest arts. In All Passions in Print profiles twenty-nine presses through a series of biographical sketches. Here are the woodcut artists, hand bookbinders, pioneers of silkscreen illustration, premier typographers, and masterful hand printers that were the mainstay of a vibrant New Mexico movement unlike any other."--BOOK JACKET
