About

We are Mike and Rita of Pegana Press-Greetings and thanks for checking out our Patreon Page.  At Pegana Press we create letterpress books by hand.  Mike hand sets the type and prints the pages using a vintage Vandercook Sp15 press.  Rita binds the books by hand, without use of machinery.  The books at Pegana Press are by necessity limited to print runs of 50 to 120 books.  The content is rare fantasy, often times previously unpublished works or previously uncollected in book form.  Mike and Rita would like to continue producing unique handmade, limited edition, letterpress books.  Since 2009, we have released 17 books and 4 broadsides.  Mike is currently working on book 18.  It takes us an average of 7 months to create books from start to finish and we are finding it increasingly challenging to sustain the press.  Making books the way we make them at Pegana Press is a full time job, but we simply are not making enough money to live on book sales alone.  We need the help of Patrons who can really appreciate what we're doing and would like to see us continue.  You can also visit us online at PeganaPress.com  Thank you for your interest.  --Mike & Rita
Goals
$290 of $1,200 per month
We keep it real here at Pegana Press.  
1. We need to replace the ink rollers on the press sooner rather than later.  
2. We also need to replace our type as it wears out and while it is still available.  (see our post about type.)
3.  Property tax comes due in October.
4.  Materials to print and bind books.  Paper, ink, binder boards, cloth, glue, etc.
