1970s Vintage Prints

A small collection of hand printed papers made in the 1970s.

All except the Smith and Hatzius are original Rampant Lion Press.

The Rampant Lions Press was a fine letterpress firm in Britain, operating from 1924 to 2008. The firm was founded by Will Carter, publishing its first book in 1936, and was continued by his son, Sebastian Carter, from 1966. 

The RLP papers are printed on Abbey Mills Greenfield paper made in Wales from 1821 to 1982. It produced high quality writing and ledger paper from esparto grass imported from North Africa.
