"From College Printer to Personal Publisher"

David R. Godine, known as "the last of the personal publishers,"

of sculptor Leonard Baskin's Gehenna Press, five years in New York
learning the business with the Book-of-the-Month Club, and
his establishment of the house which bears his name.
He is famed for publishing material close to his heart-
writers he has discovered, classics he claims have been
too long out of print, and typography and the graphic arts.
