Chester Creek Press is a letterpress printer and fine art publisher of limited edition books and ephemera in the fine letterpress and hand bookbinding traditions. Our goal is to bring fresh ideas to each of our books without losing sight of the time honored principles of typography and design. Whether it be books, other printed matter, or our handmade bookbinding tools, we adhere to the highest standards of craft, using the finest materials, hand set metal type, fine papers, and hand bookbinding methods.

Chester Creek Press is located just outside the hamlet of Chestertown in the Adirondack Park of New York State. We love to have visitors so please give a call and stop by if you're in the area.
