Michael Caine 

Atelier de la Cerisaie

Letterpress shop established in 1993 run by book-artist Michael Caine. I work on a variety of diverse book commissions for French publishers of artist’s books (twenty to thirty per year). Currently collecting as many interesting types for book-work as possible, plus unusual French types from 1890 to 1930 and Italian nebiolo types. Have extensive collections of original foundry versions of: Sabon, Kis-Janson, Stempel Garamond, Mauritius, Athenaeum, Trieste (Kleukens) and small amounts of authentic Art Nouveau types. Commercial work, letterheads, invitations occasionally done. Have good contacts with network of European letterpress suppliers and French printers. Michael Caine publishes modern European poetry as Editions Petropolis.

Dear Mr Caine,

I would like to send you an e-mail regarding obtaining loose type, decorative borders, etc. Kindly forward me your e-mail address if you are willing to communicate with me.

I am starting letterpress printing soon and would like to obtain the necessary fonts, etc. We are traveling to Paris on 27 May (this month) and I was hoping to meet with you whilst there.

I look forward to your response.

Kind regards,
