I ordered two of these, as gifts, and they came quickly, each inscribed for the intended person. True to its theme of using paper to craft things, the package was lovingly put together by hand. This was a wonderful buying experience!

About

"Purgatory Pie Press is a sanctuary for artists, designers and typographers who are seduced by the kiss of type and the touch of metal." -Steven Heller

Artistic director Esther K Smith collaborates with founder/typographer Dikko Faust and other artists and writers. Their work is in museum collections including MoMA, Smithsonian, Cooper Hewitt, National Gallery, Walker, and the Tate. Exhibitions include Metropolitan Museum of Art and Victoria & Albert Museum. Purgatory Pie Press is one of the longest running artist/presses. http://www.aiga.org/devil-in-the-details-an-interview-with-esther-k-smith
