Last year I got the chance to work with one of my heroes, science fiction author, Jack Vance. I collected all the excerpts from the five Demon Princes novels that dealt with the Avatar’s Apprentice: Scroll from the Ninth Dimension, and put them into one book. I letterpress printed, illustrated, and hand bound an edition of thirty-five.

I used photopolymer to print all the text and images in this book. Photopolymer is a miracle of science. See my post on the mysteries of photopolymer printing here.

I recently started working on my second Jack Vance book project. Hopefully this summer I’ll be letterpress printing one of my favorite stories from The Dying Earth, “Liane the Wayfarer”. Anyone who has read it will know how terrifying it is and how much great imagery is in there to work with.
