Hungry Ronin Press is operated by Robert Stow. His connection to letterpress goes back a long way. Robert's parents had his birth announcements printed by friends on their letterpress; a year later, they bought their own, and thus Robert grew up around printing. He learned to carve linoleum blocks from his mother, and his father taught him how to operate a press. Robert uses the family's Chandler and Price Pilot presses to produce his booklets and linocut prints.
