Pinyon Review
printed in-cabin on sustainable paper, pressed, hand-sewn,

Hemp Heritage Paper

100% sustainable, archival, made in the USA

Smooth-textured with natural specks from the hemp and recycled paper content.

Pressing

Before sewing, we press pages and cover stock in a family press.

Susan’s father bought the press at a flea market in Munich during the summer of ‘69, while he was living and teaching in Italy and Germany. The press caught his eye for pressing plants like his grandfather ... So he balanced it on the handle bars of his bicycle to bring it to his temporary home and eventually back to California.

He later gifted it to botanist and bookmakers Susan and Gary Entsminger in Colorado.

Sewing

On winter nights with music playing and dreams twinkling in the sky,

we punch holes with a bookbinder’s awl

and sew the pages and cover together with linen thread reinforced with beeswax.

Voilà

We are happy to present this beautiful edition to you.

Ready to ship in eco-friendly envelopes also made in Colorado.

Cutting

Covers printed then cut. Interiors cut then printed.

Cover Art

Photograph “Mount Tai” by XIA Haitao, Text Designed by YIN Xiaoyuan

Book Block

Interior text blocks printed and assembled together with covers.

Seaside art on title page and throughout the issue by Liz Meer.

Japanese Hand Drill

The smooth clean action of the hand drill bores 2-mm holes through the book block.

Drilling through a few pages at a time, requiring ultra precision to keep pages aligned,

this stage of the process requires great time and concentration.

Japanese Stab Binding

Finally, the books are bound in a traditional 4-hole design

Sewn with Irish linen thread

reinforced with raw beeswax from the Midwestern U.S.
