Windmill Hill Waddesdon book

Libanus Press was founded thirty years ago as a letterpress workshop, using Heidelberg
letterpresses and its own type foundry to print fine limited edition books. With the
introduction of computers, the Press attracted the attention of publishers wishing to
use this typographic expertise in general publishing. The Press has gone on to produce a
wide range of books to the highest standards, from richly illustrated books and exhibition
catalogues to trade paperbacks.

Libanus Press is an independent design company
specialising in fine typography, book production and
design for print. Our clients are publishers, museums,
art galleries, cultural institutions and private individuals.

Pre-Raphaelites and Vencice books

Libanus Press can offer advice on the production process from manuscript
to finished bound book, working closely with clients every step of the way.


After many years of experience as book
designers, Michael Mitchell & Susan Wightman
of Libanus Press have written and published
the definitive manual on book typography.
