Meet the Author

When he was a boy, Michael McCurdy loved printing. "I wanted above all to print things," he says. "I wanted to set type, smell printers' ink, hear the clank of presses, and produce little newspapers. I wanted to put words together in a way that would please the eye." Later, after studying art and then teaching it, his dream finally came true. He started his own press, where he made fine books by hand.
