The Ligature on Ligatures

The Ligature is a full-service commercial printer, dedicated to the art of printing and engraving.

Their craft is a rare commodity in today’s digital world. The Ligature wanted to demonstrate their many capabilities in a clear and artful way and they asked legendary type designer Doyald Young and Kuhlmann Leavitt for help. A variety of fine papers are French folded and adorned with embossing, engraving, foil stamping, thermography and lithography. Doyald's text offers a primer on ligatures that educates the reader and leaves them smarter than when they first picked up this little gem of a book.
