Olive Branch Press

The Olive Branch Press is a press for producing professional editions of hand-printed prints and artist books, which are created in our studios for galleries and museums and print/book collectors. We have worked with the following artists: Kumi Korf, Zevi Blum, Buzz Spector, Kay WalkingStick, Peter Jogo, Katherine Anderson, and Maddy Rosenberg.

The formation of this press is based on the establishment of the Olive Press which began in the late 1980's at Cornell University with two professors Greg Page and Viktor Kord, who published a series of professional publications independent of the university. Greg Page, a founding member of The Ink Shop, encouraged us to continue this legacy through the Olive Branch Press.
