Print Farm and environs

Print Farm and environs

Yesterday the Seattle-based Book Arts Guild gathered at Stern & Faye Letterpress Printers in the Skagit Valley to celebrate BAG’s 30th anniversary.

It was the quintessential Northwest midsummer day, perfect for a picnic in the country with congenial book artists and printers.

Later in the afternoon, multitalented musicians and printers from Bison Bookbinding & Letterpress serenaded the guests as they enjoyed the shade and cool breezes under the apple trees.

Jules Remedios Faye and her late husband Christopher Stern hold a special place in the hearts of many in the Northwest book arts community. For many years, Jules and Chris shared their passion for craftsmanship, letterpress printing, fine typography, and bookbinding with visitors to their workshop.

The Print Farm is infused with their generous spirits.
