About FirebrandPress

Sales 115
On Etsy since 2011

specializing in letterpress printing for books, cards, limited edition prints, and more

I'm Lauren Faulkenberry, and I work under the imprint of Firebrand Press. Based in the mountains of North Carolina, I am a book artist and printmaker, a lover of nature, mythology, and all things hand-crafted. I first came to printmaking as an illustrator who wanted to make children's books. The magic of storytelling sucked me in, but the artistry of what comes with making objects by hand is what hooked me for the long haul. I've come to love the craft of making books from start to finish--from the printing and binding of editioned works to making handmade paper for books and ephemera.

Most of my books and prints are small editions, generally under 50 copies of each. Prints are hand pulled using a letterpress or an etching press--and sometimes using hand tools. As a writer, I've always been enamored by storytelling and the printed word--at a certain point I began to see a distinct beauty in letterforms, which led to my practice of calligraphy. What I love most about printing is the ability to combine text and image in intriguing and mysterious ways, and produce multiples of the project. Sometimes I build books around my own writing, but some projects are collaborations with other artists.

I love it when something I've made makes someone else happy. Spreading happiness is fun...so I strive to create things that are unique, yet affordable.

Items in my shop are all handmade, all the time.

Thanks for visiting!
