Val Lucas runs Bowerbox Press in Monkton, MD. The barn/studio houses 7 restored letterpresses plus metal and wood type; the rural surroundings inspire landscape prints and intricate wood engravings. 

In 2021 and 2022, Val spent a lot of time learning to cast type. Follow @bowerbox on Instagram to see more! 

A big 2020 project was printing posters for free distribution to local Baltimore businesses to support them during the pandemic! To help us keep the lights on, consider chipping in at our GoFundMe so we can continue printing and sharing with Baltimore.
