MONTEREY, Ky. (November 2016) – Two holiday events will celebrate the publication of “Larkspur Press: Forty Years of Making Letterpress Books in a Rural Kentucky Community 1974 – 2014,” the new book by Gabrielle Fox. It is co-published by Gasparaux Press in Canada and Larkspur Press.
The address is 340 Sawdridge Creek West. If it has been raining, it’s best to call ahead to make sure the causeway is open. The phone number is (502) 484-5390.
On Nov. 26-27, the book will be offered for sale at the annual Larkspur Press Christmas Open House in Monterey, Ky.
On Dec. 10, The Berry Center in New Castle, Ky., will celebrate the publication of the book with an open house from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Henry County author Wendell Berry will give readings from the book at the Berry Center, 111 S. Main St., New Castle, Ky.
Larkspur’s open house offers after-Thanksgiving shoppers an opportunity to visit the press and browse through a large collection of soft-bound and hard-bound copies of books printed at Larkspur Press.
In addition, there will be handmade journals by Leslie Shane, greenery from Hazelfield Farms, handcrafted soaps from Anna’s Sweet Essentials, Dara’s hand-dipped tapers and silk scarves, and pottery by Maureen Hall.
Hours for the open house will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 26, and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 27.
