Carolee Campbell
Sherman Oaks, California

Carolee Campbell inaugurated Ninja Press in 1984. She designs each edition of books, which she illustrates, handsets in type, prints and binds. She is deeply committed to making the beautifully executed book as well as to the continual investigation of form using unusual materials, thereby harnessing both as expressions of book art for the 21st century.

The type is handset Van Dijck and Weiss Initials Series I. The cover is goat parchment with a protective hard-sided chemise covered in deep green Asahi Japanese cloth.
