An exhibition of books, portfolios, and prints by longtime Bay Area letterpress printer, designer, and publisher Peter Rutledge Koch, presented by Stanford Libraries’ Special Collections. Koch, whose training, influences, and achievements place him in the lineage of San Francisco literary fine press printers, has long been recognized as one of the most accomplished printers and typographic designers of his generation. The works on display, published between 1974 and 2016, span wide-ranging territory, from cowboy surrealism to pre-Socratic philosophy, and from contemporary and Renaissance poetry to hard-hitting photo-based requiems to the American West.
