A selection of hand-made books from the Hestan Isle Press
The Hestan Isle Press prints texts which are romantic, amusing, uplifting, or just hard to find - made in Scotland.
The books are letterpress printed 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 or Peter Grant, and all are hand-bound using artificial leathers, book-cloths, and interesting papers.
In the hundred and fifty year old cottage in rural Scotland where I live - I am lucky enough to have my own studio and print-room where I can observe the natural world as I work.
I learned lino-cutting and printing on an old Columbian hand-press at Art College when I was fourteen but have only just revisited the craft in the last four years.
I have been making and printing small letterpress books and pamphlets using an Adana "eight-five" and a Victorian screw-press. The books are illustrated and the lino prints are a logical addition to my skill set.
