Abstract:
Horse & Buggy Press in Durham combines the oldest and latest printing techniques in unique books. Founder Dave Wofford started the press in 1996 and creates books that are entirely hand-printed, entirely machine-printed or a hybrid of the two. He collaborates closely with authors to create small runs of books that are self-published and allow for more artistic freedom in the printed book through images, the paper, the type, and the layout.

Abstract:
David Need is a religion professor at Duke who recently published a translation of Rainer Maria Rilke’s (1875-1926) poetry. The publication was a collaboration between Need, Durham’s Horse & Buggy Press, and artist Clare Johnson. The 500 copy letter-pressed edition focuses on Rilke’s rose poems about beauty love. Need, his printer, and Johnson attempted to reflect that by making a beautiful book that included the French originals with translations and original drawings.
