The destination for history

Fine press

The History Press has teamed-up with Rooksmoor Press to produce beautiful and unique fine editions of some of our most loved books.

We have worked with master craftsmen in the letter-press industry, like Stanley Lane, to produce these hand-bound, limited edition, collectable works. 

These books are letterpress-printed from metal type which has been typeset and cast in ‘Monotype’ hot metal, a system dating back some one hundred years. Rooksmoor Press is possibly the last of its kind, embracing this historic method of book production.
