Further information:
"What is the purpose of this account? Perhaps I should begin by stating what it is not. 'The Wayzgoose Affair' is not a manual for aspiring letterpress printers, it doe not attempt to convert paperback devotees to better quality books, nor does it try to 'talk up' private press and artists' books as an investment. This book is a record of the joys and frustrations of utilizing the creative potential of a technology which, since its invention 560 years ago, has been put almost exclusively to commercial use. It is record of an unusual activity which, in spite or being carried out in the time and in the wrong place, has been successfully sustained for two decades." Jadwiga Jarvis (from the Foreword)
