Leszek Knyrek’s 2022 Nipping Press Calendar

Some of Knyrek’s nipping press collection. Photo from his Kickstarter page.

Leszek Knyrek, a Polish bookbinder for 25 years and currently a student in Book and Paper conservation at West Dean (England), has a kickstarter for his really beautiful calendar featuring some of his 60+ nipping press collection. He calls it his “a bit late” calendar. The photography is really well done, and his collection amazing. I’m mainly familiar with US and UK models, there are some really elaborate European ones in the images. Full disclosure: he sent me a free copy of the calendar. But I’m looking forward to purchasing it for the next four years, maybe more if his collection keeps expanding!

I couldn’t find a number of presses the William Streeter collected for his book on the right.
