Grab Yourself a Piece of Purgatory Pie on Tuesday

Yesterday we found ourselves opening a door on the 4th floor of an otherwise nondescript building in New York, revealing Purgatory Pie Press, the amazing little letterpress studio, in all its glory. A show of their work just closed at the Cooper Union but is traveling to many additional locations across the country (watch the site), and there’s a new book by proprietor Esther Smith called How to Make Books, which we can’t wait to get our grubby little hands on. They’re having an open house Tuesday (that’s tomorrow) from 6-8pm to sell some of the limited-edition cards, prints and whatnot they’ve made over the years. Be forewarned when we say this really might be your only chance to acquire some of these goodies. In fact, some are already un-acquirable. We tried.
