The conversation between literature and the visual arts plays an important role in the work of All Along Press. Inspired by the traditions of fine press publishers like Loujon Press, Red Ozier, Bird and Bull, and Turkey Press, we produce small editions of great writing. The process begins with thorough reading and contemplation of the written work, followed by designing the structure and layout of the book and selecting the best papers. The words take shape in the type kitchen, where each letter is set in place by hand, a time-consuming process that encourages further contemplation of the writing. After each page is printed and illustrations added, the book is carefully sewn and bound—all by hand. In addition to books and chapbooks—which can take more than a year to complete—All Along Press participates in an ongoing collaboration with the Fort Gondo Poetry Series to produce letterpress broadsides in conjunction with the readings of poets from around the country.
