On December 7th esteemed author David Quammen came by the press to sign copies of "The Same River Twice", a book Colin had printed in honor of his visit. David has an enviable job and regaled us with stories of his adventures researching articles for National Geographic and trekking through the desert.

The book was printed in an edition of 60, the type is Dante, and the papers are Gutenberg Laid and Fabriano. Colin had a great deal of fun creating the wildly textured background for the cover.

A copy of the book (the insect on the front is a stonefly featured in the printed chapter).
