Godine, David R.



After receiving degrees at Dartmouth College (1966) and Harvard University, David Godine worked for Leonard Baskin, the renowned typographer and printmaker, and Harold McGrath, his master printer. With Lance Hidy and Martha Rockwell, he opened a printing shop the following year in a deserted barn in Brookline, Massachusetts. His first books, printed on his own presses, were nearly all letterpress, limited editions of at most 1,000 copies, printed on high-quality rag or handmade paper, and, tellingly, quite reasonably priced. fter three years in the barn, the company moved to downtown Boston, where it has remained ever since, turning its attention to publishing rather than printing.
