PERISHABLE PRESS LIMITED
Artist and poet Walter Hamady founded the Perishable Press Limited on his farm in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin, in 1964. The name came from his own view of human life: perishable and limited. The work of the press is characterized by the use of Hamady’s own handmade paper, featuring a rough texture and a variety of colors, and by complex binding structures and noteworthy colophons. Since 1966 he has taught book arts at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
