    This 44-page mini-hymnal for the Christmas season is equal parts practical songbook and objet d’art. As this project was being conceived and designed, David Jonathan Ross’ Font of the Month Club delivered two typefaces (Bradley and Fern) which perfectly fit the incunable/private press movement energy of the piece. Providential!

    The books were risograph printed with teal and bright red inks by Clatter Press in Columbus, Ohio (a print studio co-owned by the designer). Bradley and Fern stand up really nicely to the inky and chromatic riso process.

      Only 40 printed? Were they all made for a single church? Very nice

      @Thiago: This project was just created for singing with a small group of friends! In hindsight, though, wish I’d produced more copies.
