Historic Ledger Books Copied and Reproduced for St. Paul Plumbers Union. 
Monday, January 28, 2019, 04:10 PM
Although we are generally thought of as a fine art printer we often do digital restorations of historic photographs and documents. A recent project involved scanning four late nineteenth and early twenty century record books for the St. Paul Plumbers Union.

Since everyone involved wanted to keep the books looking old we removed some of the color cast but left the books in mostly original condition. We then printed out the book pages and had them professionally bound with a custom gold foil logo on each book.

The original books were preserved with archival materials for safe keeping. Now anyone wanting to see these fascinating documents can readily pick up one of the very accurate reproductions while the originals are now safe from light and handling. Along with the books we helped organize and stabilize the unions historic photographs with archival storage material.

Sisters Jane Donovan and Hollly Trechter recently authored and illustrated a children's book titled Esme Doole & the Kirkkomaki Circus. The book is featured in a two page article in today's St. Paul Pioneer Press - Sunday Life arts and entertainment section. We made high quality archival prints of some of the wonderful illustrations in the book. They are made available whenever the authors-illustrators do book shows and signings.

Midge Bolt is featured in a one person exhibit at Abode Gallery in Stockholm Wisconsin.
