Lance Hidy, designer of books, posters, types, and stamps, created a stamp for the U.S. Postal Service in 2002. Lance Hidy: Designing the Mentoring Stamp is the story of that process, along with Hidy's observations about design, photography, color, aesthetics, and his own typeface, Penumbra. The book, designed and published in 2007 by Michael Russem at Kat Ran Press, is printed in four sections (a total of 48 pages) on Mohawk Superfine (80 lb) paper and includes 38 full color reproductions of Hidy's work. Composed in Dante and Penumbra types, the latter designed by Hidy, the books were printed at Stinehour Press on Mohawk Superfine paper. Those not familiar with the work of Lance Hidy can see the mentoring stamp at: www.usps.com/news/2001/philatelic/sr02_003.htm, or his posters at his own website: www.lancehidy.com  More information about Kat Ran Press and the production of Designing the Mentoring Stamp, can be found at: http://www.katranpress.com/books9.html

The catalogue was printed at Studley Press, Dalton, Massachusetts, on Mohawk Superfine papers and bound by Acme Bookbinding, Charlestown, Massachusetts.
