Re: Book Arts Resources in England

If you're anywhere near Oxford, there is a B&B run by Claire & David Bolton.
Claire is a fine printer, has published a number of books on handmade paper,
and runs a letterpress shop/type casting operation/limited edition printing
& binding operation in their barn. Their home, Hyde Farm House, was originally
a stone hall house built by Abingdon Abbey circa 1290. It was extended in 1652.
They also do workshops, etc.

In short, it doesn't get a whole lot better than this.

They can be reached at <AlembicPrs@xxxxxxx> and their web site is at:
