Small Press publisher and printmaker.
Wigtown Press is a new small press and fine art printmaking business set up in 2020 by Helen Morley. I print hand composited limited edition books, chapbooks, broadsheets and letterpress ephemera on a newly restored 1880's Cropper Minerva printing press with a growing collection of moveable metal type. This work is illustrated with hand carved acrylic engravings, lino prints, etchings or photopolymer plates. As an autistic artist and micro publisher, I am working to share the stories of Gallovidian poets, writers and other artists who may face exclusion from mainstream opportunity.
