Creating Fine Books One Letter At A Time
"What we try to do with our craft and art is to publish in a well designed, well made way. Our focus is on the writing. Artwork is used to complement the poem or story. We try to publish an edition that is affordable.
"Larkspur Press books are highly collectible for their scarcity, beauty, and the importance of the works. They often feature Kentucky writers such as Wendell Berry, Guy Davenport, James Baker Hall and Bobbie Ann Mason.
"In addition to publishing, we are helping keep alive the traditional art of letterpress printing, which is shown in the special editions we issue, along with the more affordable regular editions. Larkspur books and broadsides are a delight to hold in the hand. In letterpress printing the words are in the paper not on it. To run your fingers over them is a tactile delight.
"Over the years there have been many apprentices at the press, but the folks now responsible for the work are Leslie Shane, Carolyn Whitesel and Gray Zeitz."
