Punchpress is a neighborhood workshop space in Austin, Texas, for people who are interested in letterpress printing and bookbinding. Whether you are an artist wishing to explore, or an experienced designer in need of a computer break, Punchpress is a place to learn and create.
My name is Meredith Miller, and I have been involved with bookbinding and letterpress printing for more than 25 years. After studying printmaking and Bookarts in Philadelphia in the 1980s, I moved to Austin in 1991 to work for Booklab, where I specialized in restoration and artist’s bindings. Later, I ran the letterpress lab for the University of Texas design department for ten years and concurrently was the co-owner of Roto, a letterpress design business, from 1996-2002.
Punchpress began in the summer of 2002. Initially a commercial letterpress business, Punchpress is now a studio dedicated to teaching others and developing personal research and projects. Along with my work at Punchpress, I am a photo editor and work with my husband, photographer Bill McCullough. We are located in the Northfield neighborhood of Austin, north of Hyde Park near the North Loop business district.
