Peter Rutledge Koch has been designing and printing books and ephemera since 1974, beginning his career in Missoula, Montana with one platen press. He since settled in the San Francisco Bay area and following the San Francisco literary tradition of fine press printing, has acquired an international reputation and several more presses. His clients and collectors range from major international research libraries to bibliophilic organizations and private collectors and publishers. Between commissions, he designs, prints and publishes limited editions of ancient Greek philosophers, the musings of maverick poets, and the images of world-renowned wood engravers and photographers. Editions Koch specializes in publishing limited edition livres d'artiste, broadsides, portfolios, and text transmission objects.
