The Aries Press was an American private press founded by Spencer Kellogg, Jr., in the 1920s. Influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement, the Aries Press produced exceptional examples of fine printing. Richard Kegler documents its colorful history accompanied by fine illustrations and samples from the Press.
The digital version of Frederic Goudy’s Aries typeface, was released by P22 in 2003 and the result of Kegler’s ongoing research into the history of this type and the Aries Press are collected into this book. The regular edition of this book was released by RIT Press and is available from RIT Press directly.
This deluxe edition of The Aries Press is a collaboration with P22 Type Foundry, RIT Press, and Wells College Press. It features:
Additional letterpress printed pages, including a frontispiece printed on the Kelmscott-Goudy Albion Press at Rochester Institute of Technology
