Vale Press

Vale Press,

celebrated British establishment for fine printing. It was one of the presses founded in London in 1896 during the revival of the art and craft of making books. The Vale type and the other types (Avon and King's Fount) used by the Vale Press were designed and the printing of Vale Press books was supervised by the artist Charles Ricketts; the presswork was by the Ballantyne Press. The masterpiece of the Vale Press is The Works of Shakespeare, in 39 volumes (1900–1903). The work of the press, encompassing 45 titles, ended in 1904, and Ricketts then destroyed the types.
