The Old School Press prints and publishes new texts in limited editions with specially commissioned illustrations. We use traditional letterpress printing techniques - metal type and fine papers - and our books are hand-bound to our designs.

One of our books can start with a text, a paper, a typeface, or a medium of illustration. Where it finishes is never fully known until the sheets go to the binder! Our aim is always to find a combination of text, illustration, typeface, papers, and binding that makes a unified whole. Our books are generally illustrated with specially commissioned work from artists working in a variety of media which to date have included watercolour, linocut, wood engraving, wood cuts, line drawing, pastels, digital, photography, and pochoir.

You can order books from this site: just click on the button on the left.

Why not sign up for our occasional e-newsletter? No salesperson will call! Click on the button on the left.

There are many highways and byways on this site. To get around use the buttons on the left. The button will take you to a guide.

If you are a binder and like to obtain unbound sets of sheets you will find that we often reserve a small proportion of an edition in sheets for binders and at a large discount. Look for books with the sign, which will tell you how many sections are involved, and click on the button on the left for a list of books available in sheets.

I occasionally prune my own collection of books, printing ephemera, and printing materials and have some items for sale view a list of secondhand books for sale.
