Russell Maret began studying letterpress printing in 1989 in San Francisco. Initially studying with Peter Koch, he went on to be resident printer at the Press in Tuscany Alley, and to continue his studies at Firefly Press in Somerville, Masssachusetts where he worked as Monotype and Linotype compositor as well as a pressman. He returned to New York in 1993, and began printing and bookbinding at the Center for Book Arts. In 1999 he set up his own studio and has been moving it around ever since. At some point in the mid to late 90′s, Russell became disillusioned with the printed, typographic book as he had been approaching it and proceeded to spend the next ten years devoted to the study of geometric and pre-typographic alphabetic form. These studies, combined with his drawings of the intervening years, have recently lead him back to the printed book. www.russellmaret.com
