The tradition of book-making is not just a craft--it is an art form. Back before the printing press made books easily available to the common citizen, great care was given to the formation of books.

Some of these companies produce limited editions of classic titles exclusively, and these books tend to be highly sought-after by collectors. Due to the high quality and scarce nature of their publications, fine press books are often valuable.
