Books about the Printing, Paper, and Bookbinding Arts

Published John DePol Pattern Papers

Beginning in the 1950s, the American master of wood engraving, John DePol (1913–2004), cut small, endgrain blocks featuring subjects from nature, the heavens, the book arts, and fantastical abstract/geometrical designs. Pattern papers were created from many of these images, printed, and used as binding papers for fine-press books. Illustrated in Endgrain Designs & Repetitions: The Pattern Papers of John DePol are 117 of these image units and patterns. The Legacy Press is pleased that it has exclusive license to publish John DePol Pattern Papers.

The Legacy Press has published ten John DePol Pattern Papers that can be purchased by the sheet through Hollander’s in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
