Larkspur Press in Monterey, Kentucky produces books that are works of art. Larkspur has printed books by Wendell Berry, Bobbie Ann Mason, James Baker Hall, Frederick Smock, Guy Davenport, and Ed McClanahan, just to name a few. From their website:
All our work is handset in metal type and printed mainly on a hand-fed C&P. Sometimes the artwork (photo engravings, woodcuts and wood engravings) are printed on a Vandercook #4 or on a Washington hand press. We publish mostly Kentucky writers in two editions. The regular edition is printed on fine machine made paper, and since 2005 hand bound at the press. The special editions are printed on Moldmade or handmade paper and hand bound, usually with decorated papers over boards.
The following is a list of Larkspur Press books that Carmichael's is pleased to carry. We are also happy to special order any book from Larkspur that is still in print and available.
