Expedition Press is a letterpress printshop in Kingston, WA focused on poetry and type, run by artist Myrna Keliher. Our mission is to deepen regard for language and increase access to poetry. We make art, books, broadsides, and all kinds of printed propaganda.
We partner with poets and publishers worldwide to amplify damn fine words with exacting typography, both on and off the page. Learn more about what we do. Our shop houses a fully equipped letterpress studio and bindery, including three platen presses, board shears, a guillotine paper cutter, and thousands of pounds of metal type.
Expedition Press is located in a small town on the edge of Puget Sound, northwest USA. Our shop is not open to the public. Find out what we’re up to at all hours on Instagram and join Expedition’s mailing list for infrequent and intriguing updates.
