Horse & Buggy Press in Durham combines the oldest and latest printing techniques in unique books.

David Need is a religion professor at Duke who recently published a translation of Rainer Maria Rilke’s (1875-1926) poetry.

Need, his printer, and Johnson attempted to reflect that by making a beautiful book that included the French originals with translations and original drawings.
