The St. Ambrose Fine Art Department was founded by Fr. Edward Catich. During his life he presented multiple books on typography and calligraphy under the imprint “Catfish Press”. In the mid aughts Kat Anderson was able to acquire a significant amount of letterpress equipment from Ron Black. In the interim St. Ambrose has established an undergraduate degree in Book Arts that also allows for visiting artists to come and present a limited edition artist’s book or broadside at the University.
