Curses by Aaron Parrett

Author Aaron Parrett wanted to make a simple book as a way of learning how to hand-set type and print with a C&P treadle press. The result was this humble pocketbook of whimsical curses that he sewed and bound by hand. The simplicity of its design, along with its vulgar content, mirrors the materials he was working with and the author’s introduction to the tools and customs of book-making.

By popular demand, Territorial Press has issued a paperback facsimile edition that also includes all the issues of The Obscurio, the monthly newsletter the author puts out (all with handset type).
