Pre-Gravel Pit Press

In 1990-1991, I worked, as Research Assistant at Windhover Press, part of University of Iowa Center for the Book. I helped Publisher Kim Merker,  and his assistants Don Howell, and Rebecca Childers make handmade, letterpress books. I took the skills I learned from master printers, Kim and Don, to my ​my first professional publishing experience with Coffee House Press, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  There I made handmade books in addition to  designing, illustrating, and managing production of Trade books.  While at Coffee House, I, along with Coffee House, made the transition from letterpress to digital publishing.
