While immersed in the work of editing and publishing trade books at Gaspereau Press, Andrew Steeves has also produced an eclectic array of letterpress-printed, limited-edition books and broadsides. In this book he revisits sixty of these projects, chronicling the influence that using traditional book-arts tools has had on his thinking about culture, design and manufacturing. His frank commentary explores the wider implications of practising handwork in the digital age, exploring the relationship between art, craft and community.
