1 Kitty Maryatt et al Habitue
Claremont, CA Scripps College Press 2007 First Edition Hardcover Collectible: Like New Hardcover 
LIMITED EDITION of 100 copies, this is copy number 81, SIGNED by Kitty Maryatt and the students in the typography class at Scripps College Press. Small 4to. 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches. [68] pages. Linoleum block illustrations, inventive text. Accordion-fold binding, lime-green cloth with molded path-ways on the covers. Fine. The focus of this book is repetition: an exploration of the habitual everyday things that one does that define one's identity. Twelve point Centaur and Arrighi typefaces were hand typeset and printed onto Somerset Satin paper. Inventive repetitious typesetting and word play enliven the pages. Repetitive paths cross and re-cross on both the back and on the front of the accordion-folded book. The image paths were constructed from 5-ply vinyl glued to MDF boards, while the reverse paths were carved from linoleum. Both were printed letterpress on Vandercook presses. Further imagery was carved into linoleum. Some blocks were overprinted while others were suicide blocks. The accordion-folded book is bound in a hard case with lime green cloth glued onto Davey board with recessed paths.

2 Kitty Maryatt, et al. Naked Faces.
Claremont, CA: Scripps College Press, 2009 First Edition Hardcover Collectible: Like New Hardcover 
LIMITED EDITION of 95 copies, this is copy number 76, SIGNED by Kitty Maryatt and the students in the Typography and Book Arts class at Scripps College. 4to. 11 1/4 x 7 3/8 inches.

Silver Ginga book cloth over boards with images printed in blue, binding is accordion-fold so that the book can be stretched out to take in the entire text at once. Fine. Naked Faces explores the emotional impact of typefaces, taking its cue from Robert Bringhurst's classification of types based on social and artistic movements from the time period in which the types first appeared. The class looked at typefaces from Bringhurst's perspective, listen to music and looked at artworks from the respective time periods. The myriad tiny details that make up a letter-form have emotional impact on the entire type-face. Highlighting those rising emotions became the focus of the book. Students selected digital typefaces from Bringhurst's classification list to investigate but used the metal typefaces available at the Scripps College Press for the emotional descriptions. Colors of forest green, teal, electric blue and purple were used for the emotive type passages.

4 Kitty Maryatt et al Power of Ten
Claremont, CA Scripps College Press 2006 First Edition Paperback Collectible: Like New Paperback 
LIMITED EDITION of 100 copies, this is copy number 81, SIGNED by Kitty Maryatt and the students in the typography class at Scripps College Press. 8vo. 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches. [86] pages. Linoleum block illustrations, inventive text explores the theme of power. Bound in printed textured back paper the spine exposes the stitching of the signatures. Fine. Power of Ten is about locating the power in imagery and taking full advantage of the power of words. The students provided powerful images, identified visual power attributes, abstracted the image, and developed their own images for the book. Lists of power words were generated simultaneously. As the images emerged, text was created to enhance the power of the image. The ten women who created this book typeset it by hand in mainly 12 point Optima type. It was printed on four Vandercook presses onto Mohawk Superfine, Soft White 80 pound cover, with a smooth finish. Images were printed from linoleum block; acrylic gel medium occasionally added texture. The signatures were sewn together over a protective accordion fold paper, and the book has folded paper covers that are printed with an image.

LIMITED EDITION of 103 copies, this is number 72. Folio. 14 1/2 x 11 1/4 inches.

The text includes a poem by Coleman Barks, "An Understanding of the Question," which was originally published in The Essential Rumi in 1995, and texts created by the students of the Scripps College Typography and Book Arts Class as responses to the Bark poem. The visual aspects of this book were inspired by the geometric structures of medieval book imagery. The colors of the linoleum blocks reflect the preponderance of lapis lazuli blue, crimson red, and royal purple in medieval miniatures; the binding introduces the color gold, which was prevalent in medieval manuscripts.

6 Kitty Maryatt et al This Tends To Happen
Claremont, cA Scripps College Press 2005 First Edition Paperback Collectible: Like New Paperback 
LIMITED EDITION of 99 copies, this is copy number 74, SIGNED by Kitty Maryatt and the students in the Typography and Book Arts class at Scripps College. 4to. 10 3/16 x 5 3/8 inches. Accordion fold binding creates 8 appropriately-sized pockets, each containing one of 7 student-produced letterpress creation with linoleum illustrations in color and a dye-cut title-page / colophon leaf. Housed in a patterned white paper slipcase. Fine. Freshmen at Scripps College are required to read William Gibson's Pattern Recognition as they enter Scripps College as preparation to discuss post-modernity. Gibson asserts that everything is pattern recognition. In this vein, students in the typography class decided how they would define patterns, writing texts with the idea of presenting text as image, and image as readable text, in order to find meaning in their pattern-making. Seven students worked independently at the Scripps College Press on four Vandercook presses to print a limited edition of this book by letterpress. Twelve point Centaur was used for the patterned texts. Several papers were chosen, including Nideggen, Frankfurt Creme, Frankfurt White, and paper from Thailand. The images have been printed from linoleum blocks or as relief engravings from magnesium blocks. The sewn double-accordion binding holds the separate sections which can be individually removed for reading. The paper for the binding was made by Cave Paper, with letterforms magically lifted in the vat from Gerald Lange's rejected papers.
