"The 'Bibliography' documents the career of The Village Press with meticulous detail and insight. In a short memoir at the beginning of the book, Frederic W. Goudy gives an account of the vicissitudes of a printer's life that is certain to ring familiar with anyone who has experienced to 'fun and fury' of a private press. The brief section from the diary of Will Ransom, co-founder of the press, fives some idea of the magnitude of the initial problems that were encountered. Despite these difficulties, they were sill able to produce books that were an able tribute to William Morris, in many ways Goudy's chief inspiration in book design."--from dust-jacket.
