Emerson G. Wulling. Printer for pleasure

[Stockholm]: Midnight Paper Sales, [2000]. First edition limited to 166 copies, this one of 140 of the regular edition; folio, pp. 71, [4]; orig. tan cloth-backed blue paper-covered boards showing the repeated design of the Sumac pressmark, leather label on spine; as new in publisher's slipcase. Illustrated throughout with 24 facsimiles, woodcuts, ink-jet reproductions, ephemera, and 7 color wood-engravings by the artist-printer, Gaylord Schanilec. Introduction by Rob Rulon-Miller and with a check-list by him of better than 270 books, chapbooks, broadsides, etc. printed by Emerson Wulling at his Sumac Press in both Minneapolis and La Crosse, Wisconsin. The text proper consists of an interview conducted by Gaylord Schanilec and Rob Rulon-Miller with Emerson Wulling in 1995 and 1999. Wulling, who began printing in 1916 and continued to print in the 21st century, printed longer than any printer before him - 87 years in all - a record, of sorts, which will quite probably never be broken. Item #19301
