Deeply Impressed was lucky enough to get a personal viewing of Liquorice Presses highly sought after Dragonfly letterpress book.
Strictly limited to a run of 50 copies, Dragonfly was written by Zöe and Duncan McFadyen and deals with the losses of 2 of their children. We didn’t read the poetry, as it was intensely personal and for the family; however we did look fully through the entire book to admire the craftsmanship that went into putting it together.
Arriving bound with twine and a hand-numbered tag, the entire contents of the book has been letterpressed. All text, all illustrations; printed by letterpress. It’s hard to convey the emotion felt when browsing through Dragonfly, even without reading the contents. The entire tome has been lovingly handcrafted from start to finish and is a fitting tribute to the memories of those passed on.
