Hand Job: A Catalog of Type by Michael Perry


Fingerprint: The art of using hand-made elements in graphic design by Chen Design Assoc.


How to Make Books: Fold, Cut , and Stich your way to a one-of-a-kind book by Esther K. Smith

The book itself is designed beautifully (chipboard cover) and reflects the aesthetic of Esther and the the press.

Esther K. Smith and Dikko Faust have been running Purgatory Pie Press for decades. They create wonderful letterpress books, artists cards and projects.  The link above is to their site rather than amazon so look around, you will see some wonderful work, videos and links.
