Fresh from his three-month placement at Typoretum, Jamie Murphy, a Dublin-based designer and letterpress printer, is seeking funding for an exciting letterpress book project – a limited edition of The Works of Master Poldy.
The book will be printed by hand from wooden and metal types at The Distillers Press in Dublin, where Jamie is about to undertake a design residency for the coming year. Experimental typographic treatments will act as illustrations and the book will be printed on Zerkall mould made paper and hand bound by Tom Duffy at his workshop in Dublin’s Five Lamps. The book will measure 38 x 22 cm and will be available in two variants. Jamie hopes to launch it on Bloomsday, June 16th this year.
We doff our printer’s hats to Jamie and wish him the very best of luck with this admirable project!
