Sister Black Press is the Minneapolis-based letterpress, book arts and design studio of Monica Edwards Larson.

It started in 2000, with the acquisition of a Vandercook SP15 proof press and two beautiful cabinets of lead type from the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration in Clyde, MO.

Upon the discovery of an original poem locked in the bed of the press, a black and white photograph and an apron marked S. Lillian Black... a press name was born.

THE BIKE PRESS

Sister Black (Bike) Press is the mobile printing and publishing studio for Sister Black Press. It is literally a vintage "clamshell" printing press mounted on the back of a cargo bike....which I pedal around to Twin Cities events, doing demos and letterpress printing Poetry Spoke Cards.
