Philosophia

Philosophia Press is a letterpress and bookmaking studio that values the traditional ways craft printing and bookmaking. The name “Philosophia,” derives from the root word of philosophy, which means “love of wisdom.” By pairing the enriching knowledge delivered from the author with the materials and old fashioned printing methods of Philosophia, this love of wisdom connects to the finished book product. The logo mark, based off of 1890’s ink illustrations, and the choice of a humanist serif with oldstyle characters positions the printing press as a place of careful craft and revival of wisdom.
