New Book, Old Tech

Larry Woiwode, University of Jamestown Writer in Residence, is putting out a new book in an old way.

The newest work by North Dakota’s poet laureate and celebrated novelist will be old-school, printed on an antique letterpress that went out of use decades ago.

Woiwode, of rural Mott, said he plans to be there while college students with ink-stained hands print a small, artisan-style book of his poetry on a museum press in a small rural town.

He said he’s excited about the process, especially the idea of using a museum-piece press to print these poetry chapbooks in a day and age when digital technology rules the printing world.

“All books are becoming artifacts and soon will be museum pieces,” he said.
