A miniature ABC book designed, printed and bound by David Clifford of Black Stone Press. It features 15-line wood type, printed in various pastel colors, with each letter accompanied by a word or phrase from the letterpress printer's lexicon. Though Clifford has been printing for over 50 years—he was among the last generation to go through the formal seven-year apprenticeship system in England in the 1950s—Letterpress Printing ABC is just his second book. In 1998 he printed a narrative series of linocuts by Vancouver artist Carel Moiseiwitsch, entitled Forgotten.
