Hello everyone!

I hope this email finds you staying safe and either fully vaccinated or on
your way there.

The Legacy Press is very pleased to announce the following book that was
published yesterday:

Russell Maret's Visionaries & Fanatics and Other Essays on Type Design,
Technology, & the Private Press. A departure from other The Legacy Press
books, this one was designed by Russell from dust jacket to the colophon.
There are 2 editions of this book. The first is a limited-edition,
hardcover book with a loose insert of a double-sided, hand-printed sheet
featuring Russell's metal and digital typefaces. The numbers are limited,
so order your copy today! The other edition is a paperback of the same text
but without the specimen. See the webpage for ordering information:

http://thelegacypress.com/maret-visionaries.html

A few copies of Maret's book (also without the type specimen) are available
in sheets. http://thelegacypress.com/books-in-sheets.html

The long-awaited, Theodore C. Petersen's Copic Bookbindings in the Pierpont
Morgan Library, edited by Frank Trujillo, is almost ready for the printer
and should be available in July. See the webpage for more information:

http://thelegacypress.com/coptic-bookbindings.html

Just to remind you that two recently published books are:

Peter and Donna Thomas: Bibliography, 1974-2020. This book is a fully
descriptive and illustrated catalog of the work of two prolific and
creative book artists. It is also available in sheets
http://thelegacypress.com/books-in-sheets.html.

and Julia Miller's Tradition and Individuality: Bindings in the University
of Michigan Greek Manuscript Collection. Julia's new book is an exhaustive
description of 100  remarkable bookbindings. This book is also available in
sheets http://thelegacypress.com/books-in-sheets.html.
