A selection of hand-made books from the Hestan Isle Press

 

 

Peter and Frances Grant at the Hestan Isle Press print texts which are romantic, amusing, uplifting, or just hard to find.

The books are letterpress printed by Peter and Frances Grant on the Hand-press from individual letters of metal type, and all are signed limited editions.

Some are Twelfth-scale books, some are Miniature Books, some larger.

Some are illustrated by Frances Grant, and all are hand-bound using artificial leathers, book-cloths, and interesting papers.
