Your Host

Annemarie Munn Annemarie Munn
Founder, Ladybones Print Collective

Although Annemarie Munn was introduced to letterpress from an early age through her father, a poet who received broadsides in the mail, it wasn’t until she started college that the art form entered her life full force. While earning her master’s in creative writing, she became fascinated with the physical aspects of creating books, and immersed herself in the letterpress printing revival. In addition to running her community studio, Ladybones Print Collective, Annemarie has served as Printer-In-Residence at the Center for the Book and managed the bindery at the hardcover case manufacturer DODOcase.
