My recent foray into the work of Paul Caponigro led me into a world that I’d thought a little bit about before, but hadn’t really immersed myself in. That of the book as a fine art object. The catalog for Paul Caponigro’s exhibition ‘The Hidden Presence of Places‘ has an essay that references ‘Paul Caponigro On Prior Lane: A Firefly’s Light: The Cushing Interviews Edited with an Introduction by Michael Torosian‘. Michael Torosian owns and operates Lumiere Press, a publishing house for limited edition books on photography using letterpress printing. To see a video interview with Michael Torosian click here. If you have even the vaguest interest in letterpress printing you won’t be disappointed.
