Under the direction of Scott Vile, the Ascensius Press seeks to reflect the care every great writer takes in converting thoughts and concepts into words, and you can experience our commitment to the writer’s art in every work we produce; in the typographical design, paper selection, hand-sewn spines, choice leather bindings, and fine marbled paper.
We have had the pleasure of publishing our own exquisitely designed letterpress editions of such great works as Thoreau’s The Maine Woods and Edith Wharton's Ethan Frome. We have also designed and produced both letterpress and offset works for many of the nation's preeminent private libraries including the John Carter Brown Library, the Boston Athenaeum, and the Grolier Club. We work with other dedicated designers to manage and supervise the printing of their works as well. Underlying it all is a focus on meticulous detail and unparalleled customer service.
