“Josef was a solid presence in the mysterious process of publishing my first book. His cover design has received universal praise, and in addition to the basic book design, he made several critical suggestions such as adding line drawings, different headers, even making valuable contributions to the title. I would recommend Josef to anyone who is interested in the finest esthetic quality in their book. The writing, well, that’s on them.”

– Judy O’Shea, author of Water Paper Stone:  Letters from a Mill in France



“I worked with Josef on a large number and wide variety of print projects over nearly ten years. He always provided top-flight pieces, in terms of both visual appeal and appropriateness — he always worked, often by doing his own research, to ensure that each design had exactly the right “feel” for its purpose. He’s cost-conscious, is good with deadlines and has a manner and sense of humor that make working with him a pleasure…”

– Wayne Mogielnicki, Thomas Jefferson Foundation (Monticello)



“Thanks so much for your wonderful printing demos of last Tuesday!  The class loved the hands-on experience and kept referring to it throughout the week, so I’m confident that they have a pretty good understanding of the hand-press book as a physical object.  Mission accomplished!”

– David Whitesell, University of Virginia Special Collections

“Josef knew the material with such detail that his lectures were always filled with intriguing new information that I would have never heard elsewhere. His experience also made him a great teacher. I loved being involved in the class, and I hope I can continue working with letterpress in the future.”

– University of Virginia Student
