P22 Ornament Coloring book
As media continues to lean towards digital and fewer printed pieces are being made, we find people still enjoy printed type specimens. P22 has decided to redouble its efforts to keep print alive by continuing the P22 specimen chapbook series. Each of these 32 page books are printed in a limited edition of 1500, usually with hand printed letterpress covers featuring metallic inks on chipboard, with exceptions noted below. Each book measures 4.5" x 6.5" and showcases a specific P22 collection, font family, or style of font.

#11 - HWT Bernice
HWT Bernice is an ornament font system designed by Marian Bantjes for the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum's border stamping machine as a contemporary application for this 150 year old machine. The digital font version expands a bit beyond the punch machine and allows designers to assemble a multitude of options using flipped and rotated variations of these basic shapes by using simple keystrokes. This specimen chapbook begins to show the user what is possible with the HWT Bernice font by giving examples of arabesques, patterns, borders, and even assembled letters that can all be created from these shapes.
(Covers are letterpress printed in red and blue inks on sunflower yellow stock. Insides printed dark violet.)

#10 - P22 Cocktail Book
The pages of this book are filled with contemporary cocktail recipes provided by friends and associates of P22 (Including the Brothers Quay, Rod McKuen, and a cadre of typographic movers and shakers). Each spread has been designed by James Grieshaber with P22 borders, ornaments, and headline fonts evocative of the recipes they are illustrating to showing the diversity of the P22 font library.
(Covers are letterpress printed in black and light blue inks on one of four color stocks: Chromolux Metallic Gold, Chromolux Metallic Silver, Curious Cosmic Pulsar Red, or Curious Skin Absinthe stock. Insides printed black and light blue on coated stock.)
