One of 'the most eminent presses k
is the Kelmscott Press, founded byf
William Morris, who created a newt
era li fine printing. He adopted af
heavy type and returned to an al-t
most forgotten style of decoration,f
finding models- in his collection ofj
medieval manuscripts.
The Doves press, of Hammer-1
smith, London, was founded by
Thomas James Cobden-Sanderson,
Oublishing its first book in 1901.
His type was styled after that" of
Jenson, and his books were noted
for their entire absence of decora-
timn, a peculiarity excepted only in
te use of rather plain initials. r
These editions approach perfection
in oinposition, presswork and pageI
placements.
'Noted for its beautiful type and7
well proportioned pages and good
Piesswork rather than decoration,
the Merrymount Press, of Boston,
has abandoned Renaissance and
Medieval styles. The Chamfinery
ress, publishing first in 129, is
renowned for "the art and science
f -proper and true proportions of
Roian letters,. proportioned ac-
doidig to the human face and
bbdy.'
The Riverside Press is probably
the most prominent in the United
States, having been established in
19 for the sake of fine printing
by Bruce Rogers. His mark is the
thistle .in the form of the Aldine
anchor. Another noted American
pikess is the Cranbrook Press, found-
ed by George C. Booth in 1900
who has followed William Morris
.n style. Its distinguishing device
is' the medieval interlaced orna-
ment.
