De Walden Press has now ceased to publish miniature books, but the site remains in place for information.

De Walden Press books are published in small editions. If you like letterpress, good leather bindings, miniature books, innovative book design and original illustration you have come to the right place.


NEW for 2015

I was invited to Guest Blog on the Foger Shakespeare Library's blog, The Collation, about the making of Storming Shakespeare: http://collation.folger.edu/2014/12/storming-shakespeare-creating-an-artists-book/

ORIGINAL BLOG: I started a blog, http://booked-out.blogspot.com/ in 2009 to document the making of Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine, answering the questions 'how are the books made?' and 'how long does it take to make a book?' 

BIBLIOGRAPHIES: Many of my books contain a bibliography. The bilbliography is there for two main reasons. Firstly, the small size of miniature books makes footnotes and end notes impractical, and I need to cite my sources.  Secondly, a miniature book can only serve as a 'taster' for a subject, so by listing the bibliography it gives the reader something to work from for further enquiry. I shall gradually be adding bibliographies to the web pages for each book.
