ABOUT THE PRESS
Letter and Spirit Press is a tiny letterpress shop which prints everything from poetry broadsides to Buddhist slogans to queer ephemera. Prints are made either in my tiny home print shop in New Haven, CT, or in the Jonathan Edwards press at Yale University. Letter and Spirit Press is also the home of Chimera, a new chapbook series devoted to writing which explores the expansiveness and complexities of trans manhood and transmasculinity.
ABOUT THE PRINTER
Jacob Romm, in addition to being a student of letterpress printing, is earning a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and Renaissance Studies at Yale University. His research interests include trans and queer histories of the early modern period, cultural and literary exchanges between Jewish and Christian communities, and the history of the printed book. Jacob translates from French, Yiddish, and Hebrew and is currently translating the Yiddish poet Menke Katz as a Yiddish Book Center fellow.
